Hello! Goodness, I have to be honest this blog has not been a big priority of mine these days. I really would like it to be, but I have a few other projects which have been taking a precedence. Now I am challenged with finding the right balance between those projects and this blog. Balance is a funny thing, as it takes a lot of work to find and even more to maintain. I felt great when I was posting daily but eventually became worn out, leading me to neglect the blog. And now, after a few quiet weeks I miss writing and posting on a regular basis.
For me the key to balance is to check in with myself on a regular basis, recognizing if and how I should refocus. Lately, I have been trying to focus on what feels right and starting there. I figure if I can fuel myself with what I enjoy most I will have more energy to go after everything else I want to accomplish. What do you think? What do you find helps you find balance in life?
A few favorites from this week:
I recently wrote a letter to a stranger and hand delivered it to someone I did not know, so this article warmed my heart. (Tiny Buddha)
Speaking of finding balance, I came across this old article on how to achieve the “Golden Mean“. The most valuable point I see is addressing your own personal needs. (Pick The Brain)
