Le Balance

What does it look like to live a balanced life? Is it not the goal, the epitome of peace to live determined in the tension between work and play? I fail miserably at achieving balance. I strive for it, but I don't think it's something that can be striven for. I cannot rest without feeling a sense of guilt, I cannot work without an impending exhaustion. How can you be kind to yourself when there is so much to be done? The answer is simple: you just have to. You just have to spend a day curled up on the sofa drifting in and out of sleep, you need to see that friend, that family who feed you and inspire you, you need to make time to work-out and love your body, you need to put your feet up and devour a novel, you need to sit in the sun with your mama, pray with your family and see the world through a still-lense rather than a moving one. You need to find solid ground as time slips through your fingers, as you push off from the blocks into the final sprint. Life is to be lived, not wished away. 


  1. I completely relate. In reality, I don't think anyone leads a balanced life!
