It’s all about balance. Making life work. Making a marriage work. The balance between work and play, activity and rest, healthy foods and junk food, others and yourself. Some times it seems so hard to get it all in. I find myself at the end of the day wanting more hours. Trying to take care of myself and taking care of everyone else. I see that if I don’t take care of myself, I won’t be able to do much for anyone else, but it’s so hard! Even when I’m trying to take care of myself I find myself having to choose. Do I do yoga, get extra sleep or make juice? There really is limited time, it’s not just a feeling. Many times you do have to make hard choices. But if you can keep balance as the goal, you may not get everything in every day but you get enough of the right things in to make a difference. Balance is what I strive for – not perfection.
