Alignment vs. Balance
Are you frustrated by your inability to achieve balance? Is there such a thing?
Rather than thinking, “balance”, I would like you to pause and consider whether you are in alignment. Alignment is a position of agreement or alliance. It is when our thoughts, life-choices, and direction all agree with and honor our core values. Have you defined your core values? And right now, are you aligned with those? If yes, then you understand that feeling “off-balance” usually occurs when you step outside of your core values and life path. If not, then perhaps you would benefit from defining your values, understanding whether your choices and lifestyle aligns with those, and determining your most transformative next steps.
When in alignment, you can still feel overwhelmed, stressed, or frustrated. The difference is that you can take comfort in knowing you are becoming MORE YOU rather than LESS YOU.
