Balance…I’m out of it. I keep hearing The Husband saying that word to me. “Balance…” I’ve decided that in 2010 I’m not going to ignore him when he says something I don’t like. I’m going to consider the possibility that God is speaking to me through him. Aren’t I spiritual? Since I’ve made this very mature decision, just 6 days ago, he’s said exactly 3 things that have gotten on my last nerve. Exactly 3 things that I feel certain are messages to me from above. But that’s a whole other post…
Balance is what I’m talking about here. Balance in life is beautiful, it provides the structure for being productive. The room to be creative. And the ability to remain somewhere on the good side of sanity.
Everyone has there own personal definition for balance in their lives. You know, almost a list of things that are non-negotiable. Things you truly can’t have sanity without…like time for yourself or a clean car. Mine involve time everyday with God, exercise, a clean and orderly home, time with The Husband, time to write, time to read…there’s more but I’ll stop. When one of those things drops off my radar for a length of time I start to unravel a bit, when two drop off it starts to get ugly and if three or more disappear you may as well club me in the head and throw me under my bed.
Since Christmas, between being sick and my “personal assistant-housekeeper” up and quitting on me. ( I won’t mention her name but we call her Emma. She’s my youngest daughter.) Anyhoo, since then, I’ve been coming unglued, unraveled and generally scurrying around like a chicken with my head cut off not getting much accomplished.
Which is why, today you are reading about balance. I’m working on it Friends….I’m sure I’ll be better by Monday. (Mainly because I’ve bribed Emma with lots of money to come clean the house this weekend…)
Do you ever feel out of balance? If you do, are there things that help? If you don’t, please just lie to me and say you do….xoxo
