I shot this impromptu video while frolicking through the high alpine this past summer in Whistler, British Columbia. It felt so good to be outside and back in one of my most favourite places in the whole wide world and it got me talking about the B-word: also known as Balance.
Balance can be a hot topic for many and often it goes something like this:
“I can’t seem to balance it all” “I need to find more balance in my life”
Do you ever struggle with this?
Well, here’s my confession: the past three years have been HIGHLY un-balanced for me.
And, for VERY good reason.
In this video, I tell you a little bit about this most recent un-balanced life of mine. And, I also share some personal reflections on these past few un-balanced years and what I’m looking forward to as I head into the next three… all while hanging out in my majestic backyard.
I even show you a rare photo of me hanging from the sky, which you won’t want to miss!!
Have a watch:
I often find, as I mention in the video, that awareness and seeing the bigger picture is an important start when assessing if your out-of-balance ways are temporary and sustainable, or are out of control and destructive.
So let me ask you this question:
Do you struggle with balance and trying to “fit it all in?”
Could you use some help finding your own personal sweet spot for balance?
I’d love to know in the comments below.
Or perhaps you’ve mastered a certain way of being that actually feels pretty darn good?
I’d love to hear about it too.
Here’s to finding the kind of balance you need in your life right now,
PS. If you know of someone (or a group of people ) who might enjoy this little video message, please share it on social media so others can reflect on this concept of balance.
Perhaps it might even spark up some thought around when it might actually be OK to be a little un-balanced and when it might be important to bring it back into balance.
