Mixed Media - Combination Of Acrylic Painting, Photography, And My Digital Magic Wand
We live in an age where we are inundated with information. What is best for a person's health, what is best for a body, how much sleep we need, what our children need for growth and stability, we what need spiritually, what we need to take care of ourselves, how to get the right job, the best job, what we need to do to succeed in our careers, what we should an should not eat.
Somewhere in there, I have found myself struggling to find a "balance" to my life.
I recently decided, it's an illusion. The illusion of balance...is that if I do everything that I am supposed to do, I will be happy and everything will fall into place. It's not true, it's just a dangling carrot. I can try do everything I am supposed to do all the time, and I will not always be happy and life will still throw curve balls.
If I juggle my life just right...it will be it's best. Except...I'm not a juggler. If I ride exactly the right line, of focus on my career and talents, focus and attention to my husband and children, rest, exercise and healthy diet...life will still take whatever path it's going to take. Because some of it I choose, some of it just happens, and some if it is choices that other people make.
I give up on the illusion of balance. Instead I turn to the peace of understanding reality and lining my expectations up to it, knowing that my life will not ever have perfect balance...and that's okay.
