Finding The Balance
That Works Best For You
I feel like I am in that movie Speed in that I have little to no control and I am trying to keep it at 50 miles per hour! I am racing around while things are blowing up. I need to take charge and take control of the wheel again! I have to turn inward and close out the world for a bit.
Inner Chaos Causes Outer Chaos! ~Unknown
I was finding relief, but not switching gears! I had to figure out a way to restore and maintain balance from within myself. It certainly has been a freeing experience in that it reenergizes me and recharges my whole being! I am able to find my natural rhythm and inner balance and tap into my inner strengths, talents and passions again.
My Top 5
- Living for TODAY and Being in the PRESENT.
- Slowing the Pace DOWN.
- Being Aware and Mindful.
- Letting GO and Releasing.
- Stopping BAD Habits and Creating a Solid Foundation.
#1 – The Here and NOW!
I need to live in the here and now and not dwell on the past or focus on the future! I feel more connected to my whole being when in the present and taking in the moments one at a time. I feel like I am using my time and energy efficiently and effectively. I feel like I can slow down and still stay on track!
#2 – Slow and Easy
I am learning for me I prefer slowing it down a bit and taking it a little easier on my whole being! I cannot continue the pace when sprinting through my life to get to the next thing and then to the next thing. I feel overwhelmed and distracted and feel as if I am doing everything half arse! I feel more in control of my time and the energy I do put into things. I feel like I accomplish and achieve more in less time and in a more enjoyable way!
#3 – Tapping Into the Senses
I know I think in terms of fight or flight versus tapping into my senses and strengths! My senses keep me focused and in the present. By tapping into my senses I can be more aware and mindful in what is happening to me and around me!
Sight, Touch, Hearing, Smell, Tasting . . .
- Connecting my feet with the ground.
- Connecting my breathe with my whole being.
- Connecting my sight to the details as well as the big picture.
- Connecting my ears by listening instead of talking.
- Connecting my sense of smell and taste in nourishing my whole being.
#4 – Letting Go and Releasing
The hardest lesson is to let go and relinquish control of what I HAVE NO CONTROL OVER! I have to stop overcomplicating and making it harder than it needs to be. I have to let go of making my life happen and let it progress on its own time. I need to find my path and journey along!
#5 – Breaking and Building
I need to break bad habits and stop some all together, especially if I become stagnant or even stuck! I need to build myself up and create a solid foundation. I need to come from a place of love instead of from a place of fear! I need to be open, embrace and lean into fear and the unknown as well as change and life transitions.
