I feel like it’s been a while. My planned ‘pancake day recipes’ and ‘valentines day diy’ posts never quite materialised and even as I write this I can’t help but feel guilty, and give myself a metaphorical slap on the wrist, for not getting my shit together and producing more content.
But its 1.30am, & i’ve spent today training clients, writing my dissertation and creating blog content. Today is a perfect example of my recent struggle to find balance.
There’s so much emphasis on finding the perfect ‘work-life balance’ at the minute that sometimes worrying about your lack of balance, is one of the factors keeping you off balance. I want to be present in the moment and enjoy time with my loved ones, but I also want to maximise my time and multi task when I’m with them. I want to succeed at uni but I also want to keep my blog updated and my readers engaged. I want to expand my personal training business and build some savings, but I also want to make time to focus on my future business plans, that I need the savings for.
Ultimately, life is full of trade offs and this isn’t one of those posts where I try and come to conclusion or recommendation about the best way to be. I guess i’m still figuring this one out and maybe that’s all that balance really is.
