I believe that balance is difficult to obtain and maintain but I do think it's possible. I also believe it must be reevaluated often and the metaphorical sails readjusted periodically. Reaching a balanced life will require noticing what is and isn't working and tossing out the items that are no longer serving me. I have to access my top priorities and release the less important.
What is important to me?
What do I value the most in my life?
Sometimes these items have to be scheduled so that a commitment can be made. Letting go of the excess will give way to a sense of freedom. A spring cleaning, if you will. Out with the old and in with that which brings me peace.
