Balance

While I don’t necessarily believe there is such a thing, lately I’ve been looking to equalize the chaos. We’ve all spent the last month in some stage of sickness and it’s given me loads of time to think. I’m living most of my life either in a state of what I didn’t get done earlier or what do I need to do later. I’m constantly working to not have to work as hard later. Does that make sense? Or does it just make me sound crazy? Either way, I’m really trying to be more present. How appropriate as we’re coming up on Thanksgiving, right?

It’s all too easy to go through life focusing on the what if’s and when this happens I’ll be happy/stress free etc. But by doing that I’m wishing away huge parts of my life and that isn’t the way to be my happiest. So this week I’m making an effort to focus on (and enjoy!) where I am in any given moment. I want to give my energy and undivided attention to those I’m with. This means less scrolling mindlessly through social media and more doing the things I love. If you celebrate, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving filled with family, friends, good food, and love.
