Forgot, not really.....
just busy finding,
Okay, so I have missed a few or two weeks of a word and I'm late on it this week but it's here and I may keep it for a bit. Do you realize how hard it is to find your balance, keep your balance, share your balance? And I don't mean the staying upright on your feet kind of balance.....
although that's pretty important too, and sometimes a thing I have trouble with!
Then there's the balance you find in the check book or accounting and all that kind of mind boggling stuff. That's really not what I'm working on either now that my taxes are done.
I'm really just talking about keeping things going smoothly, on an even keel and free
from drama. Now that might just make you stop and think about how hard it is to find that type of balance, right? Well believe me, it is...for me anyway.
I've found it to be a bit easier if I get up, stay in my pj's and don't leave the drive way. I also realize that this method isn't very realistic for too many days in a row. I can only send Big Pops to the grocery so many times on his own before all we have in the house to eat are Little Debbie's, Sour Cream and Onion Chips, Honey Nut Cheerio's, PBJ and Captain Morgan and A&W Root beer. The latter, mixed together, making me lose a different kind of balance.
I think finding the kind of balance I desire is to start by choosing your battles. Make a list of them and cross off the ones that really aren't worth it and then go with the worthy ones.
Finding balance with my time is a struggle but worth the battle so that's where I'm at first.
Unfortunately some of that time has to be spent going to the grocery so we can have real food in the house to actually cook and eat. To balance the unpleasantness of this task I try to
dance down at least one full aisle, or two if possible.
I smile at people, help them find items.....sometimes their cars in the parking lot.
Find a good magazine I can look forward to looking at when I'm home and most importantly, buying enough stuff so that I can relish in the thought on my ride home that I won't have to do this for
at least another couple of weeks!
It's really eyeopening at how much meaning each little word I look to choose has and how different each of these meanings can be.
Heck, I bet I might even be smarter by the time I'm done with all this word stuff.....
and better yet, I might be able to balance on one foot while putting my sock on with one hand behind my back. Talk about balance!
Watch for a Spring Offerings update coming next week.....
we've been busy with more than just finding balance here on the Lane.
Remember, if you can be anything....
