Week 38 | Balance.

Balance.  Ah yes, the oh-so-unatainable, possibly-fictional, ever-needed unicorn of life.  We are always trying to obtain it or maintain it, right?  And we always seem to be failing at both, at least that's my experience.  I will say this, however.  The past five years of my life have forced me to learn that the key to "finding balance" is to recognize that it comes and goes, BUT when we lose it, we need to know that we can always get it back. Just like a gymnast on a balance beam.  No matter how seasoned or amazing of an athlete they are, there ALWAYS comes a time when they....lose their balance.  But guess what, they ALWAYS get it back.  No, they don't lay on the mat and say "well, I lost it.  I guess I'm done." No.  They get back up and they find it again.  And they ALWAY do.  Same theory applies to us, especially as creatives.  It's literally impossible to lead a perfectly balanced life.  Recognizing, believing and harnessing that fact gives you relief, power and ..... you guessed it....balance.  So, here's what I know to be true.  I will lose balance.  I will lose it as a mother, as a business owner, as an artist....as a freaking human being.  But guess what? I will always find it again.
