I used to balance on one leg for a longer period time. I would say around 16-20 minutes. I was able to hold 2 kids and grab keys and a bag. Now I can barely stand on one leg for a minute.
I overdid it. But did I? I think I would have made that same sacrifice everyday to hold my children again.
Balance is a tough subject in anyone’s life. I have to admit sometimes I gave too much to the job and neglected my family, I also sacrificed my career to raise my kids, and this time I am pushing myself to create a business and have a lot of health issues to address. I wish I could take the pie and divide it equally throughout the day. I realize now that there is this dance between career, family, faith, friends, health, self development and community.
Areas of my life will pop up and remind me that I have neglected that part of my life. Balance takes a lot of skill. Can you balance all areas of your life? I believe you can and if life doesn’t seem in balance then recalculate and readjust until you find that balance.
