“You can’t do a good job if your job is all you do.”
Is there such a thing? People talk about achieving that magic state of equilibrium but I’m not sure I’ve ever gotten close to a perfect balance. One part of my life is always consuming all my time while something else is being mostly neglected.
If you know the key to a perfectly balanced life, please let me know.
I’ve spent a lot of time recently thinking about the past year. We made it through my son’s motorcycle accident (he’s back to work and doing great!) and my business venture is still a wonderful adventure.
But I haven’t made much art. I miss it.
I’m realizing that even though I love all the other things I’m doing, it’s the “making” that brings me closer to that elusive state of balance.
“You can’t have everything you want,
but you can have the things that really matter to you.”
For the first time in my life I’m looking into the future and I don’t have to plan around the schedules of my family. I always love to spend time making plans but this feels different.
It feels like a new opportunity to get things figured out.
I can choose how to spend my time. I’m wide open to any choice I make. I have ideas of course. I love the “having ideas” phase of any project. It’s the next step that is a challenge.
