I was just reading about how we are now moving into the Zodiac sign of Libra which is the balance sign. Fall has just begun in our region so change is in the air. This is a great time to think about how well we take care of ourselves and to look at the balance in our lives. I know that if I do not have good balance in my life I feel a bit cranky. I might not even know what is wrong, but I am just short with myself and my loved ones. I start to feel that I have no control over my life.
Our strengths rely on this balance. Balance creates a stability for us. Sometimes, I find that some of the people I am helping think that they need to be working on their clutter all the time. And I know that when our lives are feeling chaotic it is hard to think about more balance. But of course we cannot be focused on the hard things all the time.
This is a thought producing quote:
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving. Albert Einsteim”
We need Balance. We need to look at all of the areas of our lives and think about what might be out of balance. This gives us a clue to work on this area and tip the scales in our favour. We know that we need to recharge before we can be productive, creative, helpful to others or to declutter our own homes.
These are the areas that are basic to our lives. Think of these as foundational practices for taking care of you.
- Spiritual Practice/Self Care
- Body/Physical Health
- Emotions/Mental Health
Check out this cube and perhaps draw one for yourself or if you have a small box that will work too.
What are the foundations for your life, your relationships, your home, your health and your work?
What kind of supports would help you in your life? Do you need/want more honest friendships, a satisfying job, better health, etc…………..
What can I focus on in my life right now to create more stability in my life? What areas are out of balance?
