“Life is a balance of holding on and letting go.” Rumi
My life has been a delicate balance that is precariously close to toppling over. Some days I feel like I am juggling way too much and that something has to go, but that’s not a sacrifice I am willing to make.
Obviously there are good days and bad days. The good days are the days that I focus on each business, meet with clients, get some spec sheets done, have time for some quick phone calls or text messages to friends, and a few minutes to myself to recharge. The bad days are days that I spend entirely at my desk wrapped up in just one of my businesses and ignoring the other completely, not finding time to even reach out to a friend that needs a little encouragement, and realizing at the end of the day that I did not even brush my hair.
Oh sure, I look like all my ducks are lined up in a row, and most days I like to think they are. But there are the days that I feel like I’m balancing one thing too many and that at any second it’s all going to come toppling over.
So, while I am not willing to sacrifice something in my life in order to keep sane, I have learned to rely on others for help. I have learned to delegate and not control, I have learned to let go and trust. This is a big step for the perfectionist, controlling, self-reliant person that I am. But in order to regain balance in my life, this is what it takes. Plus, it’s a lot more fun having people by your side helping you on your journey.
