I’m going to share with you something that has been on my heart!
My husband and I recently made some big changes in our lives by moving an hour and a half away from where we previously lived, to live in our dream location with plans of building a house in the next year or so. We now live in the GORGEOUS cascade mountains next to Lake Kachess in WA. It’s crazy how this opportunity came about but we feel so blessed and we LOVE living in the forest. It’s stunning.
Although I am beyond stoked to be up here, I found myself getting stressed and frustrated and all other things because I wasn’t able to move and suddenly be in my normal routine and schedule. Well, yea, you’re probably thinking, you just moved. Oh. I know! I know all of this, and yet I was putting so much pressure on myself to have everything perfect and ‘normal’ again that I was overwhelming myself and truly not able to appreciate this cool move and beautiful place.
I have been up here a month, and I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I’ve had to check in with myself and this realization to bring me back down from my crazy…
All of this to say, there are seasons in life and within each season, there is a different sense of balance. I can look back at my life and see the different seasons and what each of those seasons held, whether it be more focus on family, work, travel, or whatever was required of me at the time.
In each season, there is a different definition of balance and that’s ok.
That’s what I keep telling myself. Because honestly, in another year or so, I may be looking back at this last month where I haven’t had much time to work on my businesses and be grateful because I got to spend more time with family and move to a gorgeous place and love on my friends.
So, take each season as they come, enjoy it for what it is and give yourself a little grace. I know that I needed to be doing that earlier than now because being healthy is being able to be healthy in all capacities. Mental, emotional, physical and lifestyle.
Take care and stay healthy friends.
