I struggle with balance. I have heard and read so much talking about balance the need for balance in life and finding a "work life balance." After a lot of thought and some attempts at trying to figure out what balance looks like for me, I decided to throw it out the window. I am never going to live a balanced life and I am okay with the fact that it doesn't work for me.
I am crazy about living this life and pursuing my passions. For me to pursue the things that matter most requires times of extreme unbalance. For instance, when I travel I tend to stay up late and get up early. I rarely get a full night of rested sleep and I come back exhausted and exhilarated. Thirsty for some rest, reflection, and the next great adventure.
This unbalanced way of living works for me as it enables me to reach new physical and creative heights. So cheers to everyone out there living it up by balancing the unbalanced life. I am right there with you!
