We are all swimming in a sea of life. Bogged down by all the things that make up our lives. Work, Marriage, Relationships, Business, Parenthood, Finances, Dreams, Struggles, and so much more. We end up wearing all these hats and balancing our tentacles in a sometimes unwavering fashion. When one is going well the others suffer and vice versa. These legs we all juggle is life. It isn’t always smooth sailing but keeping perspective is key. Going with the tides and realizing that it is okay to be swept out to sea just as it is to ride through those killer waves. The mysterious word balance may be a unicorn but it is important to note that it is just okay to be where you are.
We are similar to an octopus…so many tentacles going in all the directions but they push us to where we need to be. I think the commonality in this is that we are all doing the best we can. Balancing our tentacles, hats, whatever you want to call it. We are all a work in progress so today I just want to encourage you… you are doing just fine. You are doing better than you think. Give yourself credit and grace on what you feel you fell short on.
Today is Monday… make this week the best week by shifting your focus.
Find the things that ground you. Understand when you get overwhelmed and take action to adjust your perspective.
For me, I take a deep breath, get some fresh air (preferably salt air) and take a walk.
I mention the balance act in a post about how I Live a Double Life.
