Balance is something I’ve had to fight for all my life.
And I use the term “fight for” deliberately, because I haven’t found it easy.
As a recovering perfectionist, I frequently feel that if I can’t do something properly, I shouldn’t bother at all.
Yet this is a furphy. After all, 3 x 10 min walks around the block is better than nothing, and recent research tells us that it’s even better than 1 x 30 min walk around the block on some markers!
However back to choosing ….. throughout my career I’ve felt I’ve needed to choose between
Doing everything or doing nothing
Going at it like a bull at a gate or not even bothering
Strength or softness
The Masculine or The Feminine
Feast or famine
Flat out like a lizard drinking or lazing around on the couch .. well drinking! 🤣
Always on or always off or
Never giving up and always letting go.
My perfectionist tendencies have kept me constantly choosing between a rock and a hard place yet feeling guilty when it didn’t work out.
Balance only comes when I make peace with this part of myself and with that comes real impact.
HOW ABOUT YOU? - How do you find the balance between on and off? Any advice for others?
