Balance isn’t finding the perfect life.
To me, balance is finding my own inner peace within myself despite whatever chapter of my life I’m in.
It’s as simple as accepting the beauty of life as is. It is being at peace and being able to embrace change and as well as being able to let go of things that no longer serve you.
Our own type of balance will continue to shift and change for each of us throughout our lives. It’ll never stay the same, just like we never stay the same person. Always continuing to evolve and grow, the same goes for our type of peace and balance that we need.
Right now: balance to me is dancing all night long, and practicing yoga the next morning. Drinking wine, but not forgetting my green juice. It’s not feeling guilty for taking the extra day off from the gym because my body craves rest. It’s eating chocolate when my heart wants it, and eating kale salad when my body needs it. It’s wearing high heels on Saturday, and walking barefoot on Sunday.
It embracing and loving all sides of who I am. It’s okay to be a mix of bold, loving, brave, loud, patient, kind, loyal, respectful, and so on. As long as your in harmony with yourself, it’ll reflect in the world around you.
As important as goals are to have: make sure to find your balance along the journey. Make your own rules, follow your heart, and live to standards you set for yourself. Don’t let another’s version of who you should be —shake your balance. Stay true and in alignment with what’s right for you, who you currently you are, and who you feel you are meant to be.
