for me balance is something that is cultivated over time.
balance is more of a reminder that i have options than a perfect organisation of activities
balance looks different for each of us.
if i find myself feeling uneasy or frustrated i can look at what i may be leaning too heavily on (usually thoughts) or what i have been neglecting.
For example, perhaps I have forgotten to give gratitude for what I currently have + my energy has been too focused on what I want to achieve... I will feel this in my body as a tightening + I will be reminded to rebalance... reallocate my energy + give thanks.
balance is recognising my cycles of energy + knowing what tools to use to bring myself back to a place of ease + comfort in my body. reminding myself that i get too choose my thoughts + reactions.
balance is compassion
balance is a mindset tool
balance is a practice
balance is the natural state my body will always seek.
i can look to balance to relocate my center (inner home).
Journal prompt: how do I seek balance? Is balance attainable? Is balance important? Can I see balance in my life over longer periods of time even if I dont see it everyday?
