Yesterday I wrote about the myth of doing it all. People who appear to be doing it all are actually doing quite the opposite. (I’m one of those people.)
‘Balance’ is more about having peace with your life. And each person must have his own definition of peace.
What are the things that make you feel at peace? My list is short:
- coffee in the morning
And, the introvert in me, doesn’t want too many social commitments. (But – the outgoing part of me enjoys a good party from time to time.)
That’s it. Pretty simple.
Here’s one of the most meaningful things I’ve learned in life: I’m not missing out on anything. Everything that contributes to my peace is in my hands, within my control, and attainable.
It’s NOT about wanting what the neighbors have.
It’s NOT about seeing a competitor and wishing my website was as sparkly as theirs.
It’s NOT about wishing I hadn’t missed that party last night.
It’s NOT about wishing I was 20 lbs skinnier.
It’s NOT about wishing I had a better house/car/vacation.
It’s NOT about wanting… wanting is a waste of time… it’s a waste of my inner peace.
FOMO is real. But, I don’t play that.
Anyways… these last 2 days of posts from me haven’t been very business-y… but I want you to think about this:
what contributes to your peace?
Live in that place. That is what will contribute to feeling balanced in your life.
