Trying to Achieve Balance

How often do we hear talk, or hear ourselves talk of finding “balance” in our lives? What does that mean? For some it may mean giving equal time to each endeavor: home, kids, work, hobbies, travel, rest… For others it may mean spending a greater chunk of time on one thing and spreading the rest of the time on other efforts. Seeking balance is a basic drive, as it is in nature. We see it all around us as nature works to balance itself. What is it we’re truly seeking? Isn’t it our goal to seek a sense of well being? Does that define “balance”?

I bring up this topic because I was searching around the “net” and came across a blog I thought looked interesting. Looking it over I realized she hadn’t been on the site for about three years. I read her last post and it was all about balance. On a trip away from home she realized that her mind was at rest and not spinning trying to come up with her next blog post. She had reached the place she had been seeking: being in the present moment. She has children and summer was upon her and the thought of keeping up with all the kids’ activities, her own with her husband,  and keeping her blog current were more than she could imagine doing. The mind rest she experienced help her decide that her blog would end with that post. I was really struck by this decision and so appreciate that she left it up, as it gave me a lot to think about.

So, what is BALANCE?  Do you know what it means to you? Do you feel your life is in balance? Are you struggling with trying to find your restful mind? Are you able to capture being in the present moment and enjoy that place?

If your answer to any or all of these questions is…Hmmmm, I’m not sure, or No, I don’t know what it means or I don’t have “balance”, then you’ve come to the right place. In a reading with me, I can assist in guiding you to find that peace and rest you seek; balance, if you will.
