Finding The Somewhere In-Between

by Jan on March 9, 2009

For some of us, finding balance is an on-going challenge, be it in our work, relationships, health, etc. I, for some reason take the ‘all or nothing’ approach to life, joy riding the swinging pendulum from the “I can do it all” to the “I’m so wiped out I can’t move” mentality.

Yesterday was an “I can’t move day” and in reflection, for the past month or so I have been performing the work of about 10 people with rabid zest and fervor patting myself on the back while humming, “I Am Woman Hear Me Roar”. Balance; weighing equally work and down time; when to enter into times deep intimacy and when to be alone; allowing myself to splurge on double chocolate cake (1 piece) and fitting in the greens. One foot on either side of the teeter totter keeps both sides afloat.

These things I know intellectually. Now, I just need to pick a new song to hum to.
