Responsibilities are a necessity, but we should endeavor to find a way to schedule our responsibilities alongside our responsibilities to self and Spirit. It's in this balance we find ourselves, our purpose and our way forward.
"In art and dream may you proceed with abandon. In life may you proceed with balance and stealth." - Patti Smith
So how do we restore balance where balance is lost? First, take time. Stop what you are doing and take an hour to have a conversation with yourself about the way in which your balance is lacking.
And, as un-sexy as it might sound, schedule in time for those areas in need of attention. You deserve it. Your body and spirit and loved ones deserve the attention you'll give to the areas which need it most. Achieving balance is not easy. It's a long road for many. But it's a necessary journey towards completion. And even if completion is never truly attainable, and we should always strive for balance between body and Spirit, the ethereal and earth, the journey is where it's at.
I hope you enjoy your journey and give yourself some love!
