Push That Tush -- Balance


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, January 07, 2013



Sometimes we look at other folks and wonder
how THEY manage to keep it all together.
Their lives seem so polished and ours feel rough and hectic by comparison.
What we don't see is how slippery it really is.
Sometimes that charmed lifestyle is all just a facade
And it can topple with the slightest wave of stress.



The further you distance the needs of others separate and apart from your own
the more you may end up distancing yourself from your significant others.
You need to ask yourself if you are really balancing yourself
or doesn't that attitude only distance you from them.
Harmony comes when you find a way to bring both needs closer together.




If you see everyone else's needs as important
and your needs weigh less than everyone else's...
Do you really have balance or is it an illusion?



How well do you accomodate the things that become important in your life?
Do they become your new priority
Do you put them on the bottom
Or Do you try to modify them to fit in (or modify something else)
with the other aspects of your life?





Sometimes you need to take time to look past everything IN your life
to see where you are going and determine if that's where you want to be.
And you should do it periodically...because WE change and so do our Needs.
It may be as simple as rearranging priorities



If you're pushing a rock that just won't move...
Do you need to modify it and round out the edges?
Or do you need a different rock in your life?



And in relationships...the best balance comes when both sides
have their own balance and THEN try to support the foundation between them.
It also works best when both side have equal standing.

PUSH THAT TUSH -- FIND YOUR BALANCE

Started today with a better mood...
ate a great breakfast this morning
planning on have roasted chickpeas for lunch
and veggie pork stew for dinner

Make it a great day emoticon

    If I keep on pushing a rock that didn't budge, either I find another way of cutting the rock to small pieces so it will be easier to push (making big goal into smaller bits, tackling obstacles from many points) OR smash another rock hard enough on the non-budging rock to make crack line and easier to crumble (fight smarter!)! No matter what, I will never give up!

I'm working with balancing things right now, currently doing cutting rock :D

  This topic is relevant.

I know a couple who work way too much. I get they work is paid on commission, but I do think they must take 1-2 days off

They also do great stuff with their family or grandkids, but also sometimes are napping at meetings. emoticon

  Hi Sheryl..........
I think that, as women, we tend to put the needs of our family and close friends above our own to the extent that it becomes a source of stress. I have to work on this daily. I have to say to myself (out loud sometimes), that I AM IMPORTANT and I deserve to be thought of first. Being on this journey through SP has helped me to think of this as healthy and not selfish.
Great blog............ emoticon
