Balanced Body is the featured workout series for the month of March but NOT because I think there is really such a thing as balance.
Life is more like a juggling act and we can either be really clumsy at it or find our grace.
Now I will fully and openly admit I am feeling like a huge klutz at this moment in time. I’ve been juggling too many balls at once (Gosh, that sounds wildly inappropriate) and I’m working on re-prioritizing so I can feel sane again.
First step, get some fresh air.
Yesterday, I went for a short walk along Lake Galena here in Doylestown to restart my day. I had woken up late and was frustrated with how the morning had unfolded.
Funny, it wasn’t the walk that gave me the new perspective I was looking for...
...it was glancing at the only other car in the parking lot.
I looked because it had snowed lightly through the night, was super windy and cold and I was curious who else was out here with me. It turned out to be an older gentleman with silver hair, a rugged look (he’d gotten out for a moment to put something in his backseat) and a cup of coffee, just like me.
Both of us sat there, for quite some time.
I can only imagine he was doing the same as I.
We both had a spectacular view to gaze upon.
And then it struck me.
I’m not alone.
We all have days where we feel scattered.
It’s how we refocus which makes all the difference in our next steps.
And that, my friend, is how balance is created.
Our ability to notice something is off is a gift. It’s a sign that change needs to be made. Finding “balance” is honestly listening to our own thoughts and desires. Then taking action to bring it all harmoniously together.
There is no quick fix for this one. But each step you take will bring a glimmer of gratification and hope for the future.
When I started this blog I wasn’t expecting to be so “philosophical” but it’s what was on my mind.
Play with this idea in the days ahead and let me know how it goes by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now on to my way of finding “balance”...
Continuing to explore my desire to bring more dance into my fitness life.
