With School back in session it means early morning motivation, breakfast rush hour, sports practice, homework, dance lessons, children’s programs, Bible studies, youth groups and that old familiar feeling of overwhelm. You may not feel it just yet, but I assure you it is on its way.
So what can you do to avoid the over-whelm? The simple answer is find your balance. Balance is a sticky subject among many people though. We have careers, partners, children, family commitments, charity work, classes, hobbies, worship time – plus, big desires to improve our health. How can one possibly balance so many things?
I’m going to let you in on a little secret here: You can’t.
Balance. Is It A Myth?
“Harmony” is an easier goal than balance.
Harmony means everything is co-existing in a spirit of cooperation. But whatever you want to call it – harmony, balance, or “fitting it all in” – there is a secret to doing more of what you want and less of what you don’t want.
Want to hear it?
I just need to warn you that although the equation sounds simple, it actually takes massive willpower to execute. It also requires that you get absolutely clear on what you want your life to look like, and what you do not want in your life.
Ready? Okay, here’s the secret:
- First ask yourself what isn’t serving you. What doesn’t need to be in your life? What is dragging you down? Keeping you awake at night?
- Have you identified a few things? Now get rid of them (or fix them - now).
- Next, ask yourself what you want in your life – or in this week or day? What do you want to accomplish? What do you want to do? Who do you want to be with? Focus your energy on these things. Anything that doesn’t fit into this larger scheme… let it go (or learn how to say “no”).
