Striving For The Right Balance Is A Sheer Waste Of Time

Life is constantly moving forward and constantly changing. We can aim for balance but because everything in our lives is constantly shifting, we don’t really ever actually reach a true and lasting balance. It may not be achievable but peace is and once you find your peace, everything else seems to fall into place.

We are at that time of year where summer is coming to a close, new school years are beginning for parents and kids, football season is right around the corner, and we’re starting to crave everything pumpkin (slightly premature in my books but I do love pumpkin).

This is that time of year that we tend to get thrown off balance a bit with the change in season right around the corner. For most, it’s a change from the relaxation of summer to busy fall schedules. For some, it may be vise versa, finally, the calming effects of fall after a hectic summer.

Either way, there is this balancing act in our daily lives and balancing work, families, play, and everything in between can be quite stressful.

What if I told you that balance doesn’t exist? We strive for it but do we ever really reach a perfect balance?

Quite simply, the answer is no, balance does not exist.

Here’s why: Life is constantly moving forward and constantly changing. We can aim for balance but because everything in our lives is constantly shifting, we don’t really ever actually reach a true and lasting balance.

Balance may not be achievable but peace is and once you find your peace, everything else seems to fall into place.

I recently worked with a client who had become quite obsessed with the idea of balance. It caused her so much extra stress because she was constantly reaching for something that quite literally did not exist. This client in particular, was constantly hard on herself because she thought she had to reach this perfection in her health and life. When she wasn’t in balance, she felt like a huge failure. Unfortunately, she is not alone in this belief.

Does This Sound Familiar In Your Own Life?

Can you imagine what this type of pattern does to your self-esteem, hard work and efforts?

Together, this client and I worked on letting go of balance and accepting peace instead.

So, are you ready to find your peace?

Here’s my secret: Get extremely clear on what you want and what you don’t want.

Understand what isn’t serving you in your life. What doesn’t need to be in your life? What is dragging you down? What can you let go of? Understand what ignites you. What feeds your soul? What lights you up and energizes you?

“There is no path to peace. Peace is the path.” –Gandhi

Understand how you want to feel at the end of your day, week, month, and year. Put the focus on how you want to feel instead of what you need to accomplish. This is simple re-frame that takes so much pressure off our to-do list and can actually make it much more enjoyable.

Are you ready to dive in and make a few changes? Give peace a try, no balance required. Remember, peace is a path and everyone’s path is different.

I would love to help you get clear on what you want and what you don’t want so you can find your peace and reach your own health and wellness goals.
