Confused, frustrated, overwhelmed...words that reflect that life is not in balance. The mind, body and spirit are meant to work together...I joined SparkPeople with one focus, to lose weight and become healthier. The journey has brought me so much more; it brought to the surface other areas that also needed attention, areas that needed to be decluttered which made eating unhealthy, not hydrating myself appropriately and somehow made the time to exercise and pamper myself seem impossible. We all have the same 24 hours, what's up with the thought that comes to us all, "There's not enough time in a day".
While reading the SP articles I came across the Story of Priorities and a Jar (the link is listed below). I had heard it before, and even remember finding a movie for my daughter that illustrated the points of the story and yet we go to bed not at peace, with a sense of imbalance that can make you dread getting out of bed the next morning. Read the story, thenfind the balance that works for you, taking one day at a time.
Happy Journey everyone!
