How do you keep your life balanced?
The perfectionist in me is forever looking for balance in my life. I want the square pegs in the square holes, the round pegs in the round holes, and everything outlined in ABC's and 123's. However, life doesn't usually work out that way.
Some things fit in different slots and can't be assigned places in our outlines, lists, and calendars. Sometimes we're forced to multi-task and instead of getting things done right, we just have to get them done.
Imagine that perfect balance: a full day in the studio, creating art; while miraculously the meals prepared, the clothes washed, the house is clean, errands run, shopping done, calls answered, and the dog walked.
Can you think of anyone that fits that description? Is their life really that perfect? I'll bet behind closed doors, they really aren't doing it all, they're probably just better at playing the part.
So, maybe next time I'm kicking my work boots off to don my heels, while holding the phone on my shoulder, and cleaning the sink with my free hand, I need to remember, I can do many things but, I simply can't do everything.
