Every now and again I need a reprieve from all the technology… blogs/FB/emails/whatever. I let the emails pile up, pretend I have nothing to write, give my computer a vacation. I spend more time reading & writing using actual paper, playing with my kids, hanging out with my husband. All good things. It’s my way of tipping the scales back into balance, regrouping, letting my mind settle a bit.
Finding balance can be a challenge. Physically, Emotionally, Spiritually. When the stars seem to be aligned in one area, another aspect (or two) of life is chaotic and maybe even tumultuous. Which can be distracting and disenchanting. I’m never cease to be amazed by the fact that there are simply not enough hours in a day to do everything. While I find joy in the necessities and simplicities in life (like cooking for my family, keeping house, etc), wouldn’t it be nice if there were enough minutes for EVERYTHING?
Alas, there are not. So all those phrases like “learn to prioritize”, “effective time managAlasement”, and the like – the ones that we heard over and over again in relation to school and business – they come in to play in the day to day of life. It all comes down to balance: finding inner peace, a happy median, enjoying the journey. And as soon as you feel like you are on the right path… life will show you otherwise.
