Achieving Balance

synonyms: poise, composure

Looking at the definition of Balance it seems like it is such an easy state to achieve. I suppose in an ideal world it would be, one where we aren’t in a constant rush to get things done. Throw kids in the mix and you are now in a constant state of chaos. You not only have your own schedule and needs to meet, you now have at least one other person, someone who is now dependent on you to help them in their everyday lives. Some days it feels like a roller coaster ride or performing a balancing act on a tightrope.

My goal is to find ways to maintain balance between my own needs and those of my family, throughout our chaotic ever changing schedules. Finding ways during the chaos to find calm and patience to deal with it rationally.

How do you achieve balance in your life?
