We strive for balance.
It’s a noble goal.
But, I don’t believe that complete balance is achievable.
One or some areas of your life will always take center stage at different times.
We can’t possibly give all of our attention to every aspect of our lives at every pass.
Maybe your kids need some extra attention right now, so the household duties are set aside.
You are experiencing a hectic time at work, so you have less time to exercise.
You are in a slump, so your self-care practice needs to become a priority, meaning you have less availability for your family and friends.
You are experiencing heartbreak or troubling times, so your spirituality takes a front seat to help you through, and your work gets less of you.
Whatever the case may be, there is always something or some things that require a bit more of our attention than others at any given moment.
The problem arises when we beat ourselves up for “letting things slip.”
We get mad at ourselves for not doing everything at 100%.
