Finding Balance...

When you look up the definition of Balance it seems like it would be such a simple thing to achieve.
BALANCE (Dictionary.com)
n. mental steadiness or emotional stability; habit of calm behavior, judgment, etc.
synonyms: poise, composure
If we lived an ideal world where we weren’t always rushing around trying to get things done, then I suppose it would be easy to find balance and keep it. Throw kids in the mix and you are now in a constant state of chaos. You not only have your own schedule and needs to meet, you now have at least one other person, someone who is now dependent on you to help them in their everyday lives. Some days it feels like a roller coaster ride or performing a balancing act on a tightrope.
My goal is to find ways to maintain balance between my own needs and those of my family, throughout our chaotic ever changing schedules. Finding ways during the chaos to find calm and patience to deal with it rationally.
How do you achieve balance in your life? I’d love to hear your stories…feel free to comment below.
