Every year I have a ‘favourite word’ one that gives me focus for the year ahead. In 2020/2021 it’s all about Balance.
Balance in everything I do, balance in every element of my life.
There have been times in my life when it was ‘all’ about one thing and one thing only. When I ran the business in London with my ex-husband, I threw myself into our business, to the detriment of anything else. It became an obsession.
I think we are all guilty of spreading ourselves too thinly, saying yes, when it should be a no, and running around trying to find an extra hour in the day, to get something else done. It can get very tiring indeed and that is when burnout can happen.
Balance can mean different things to different people, but I believe it means that not one thing defines you or takes over your life, neither good nor bad.
If you are looking for a happy life, finding Balance is one of the ways you can achieve it.
Maybe now is the time to adjust your life scales?
