In between overdoing it


I was thinking today, (dangerous I know!) This week my kids started school, my son started baseball, and I got a cold putting me behind on a bunch of things I had planned for the week and I had some side projects due. I felt like I had a lot of plates spinning. In the past this would have stressed me out to no end. I would have felt responsible for everyone and everything. This time thought, I didn’t feel this stressed. Busy yes, but not stressed out. I felt full, content, happy. This got me thinking about how I viewed balance.

I always view balance as serenity, tranquility and calmness. Something I just am not. ( I don’t know if anyone from New York could be)  But is that really the only way to see balance? This week has been busy, but it felt like a good kind of busy. There was a fullness to the day, a happiness, a feeling of accomplishment and progress. Could there be balance in that? Maybe part of finding fulfillment and balance is not just the image of a calm, still lake, but also that of open sea, constantly in motion. Maybe balance is these two ideals working in tandem. Not one more then the other. Maybe there is balance in moving forward as well as pausing to consider where you have been and where you are going.
