Wow, life has suddenly gotten insane. Book due, lots of clients (which is nice), we have our apartment lined up in Syracuse, moving in May, kids finishing off the school year, and it’s a snow day. Whew!
I always admire those people who are completely in the moment. They never get flustered, never run around like chickens with their heads cut off. Just… zen. I’ve tried meditation, yoga, mindfulness, the power of now. All stuff that sounds great, but I think I’ve come to a realization that it’s just not me.
I like being busy. I like the rush. I like the sense of accomplishment. Of course, I also get exhausted, worn down, and burnt out, which isn’t so great. Then I need a week on the couch to recover. But sometimes I wonder if there isn’t some kind of balance between the zen and the rush that can accommodate both ideals, because no matter how I try, I’m never going to be that zen girl. I’m always going to be high energy, excitement, enthusiasm, and I think one of the big realizations I’ve come to lately has been that I need to accept who I am and work with that instead of against it.
So, how do you balance the Pinkie Pie part with the part that needs to say, “Om,” once in a while?
