A Life, Well Balanced
“Strengths overused, become weaknesses.”
This is a favorite quote of my super fantastic coach, Andi Burgess of Challenge YOUniversity. And I love it because it reminds me to make sure I am always in balance. A life, well-balanced is what I’ve experienced this week and I am absolutely loving it!
I am an entrepreneur with BIG dreams and BIG goals! I’m extending my coaching practice in a new city, workin on my PhD, and working part-time as a researcher in higher education STEM reform. Which means I am out there connecting with potential clients, meeting with my tribe, writing papers AND creating my own Fabulous & Zen lifestyle! I'm actively working on improving my body, exploring yoga, meditation and maintaining my deeply fulfilling spiritual practices. Whew! I need a glass of water just reading what I wrote.
I get such a rush of excitement from having such a dynamic life. My feminine-flirty side is satisfied when I am going on dates, my scholarly-intellectual side is satisfied when I do school work, my desire to improve the world and generate income while Iive my passion is fulfilled when I coach and build my business.
Here’s the wheel of life- rate yourself on how fulfilled you are in the various categories. Let’s do this, mindfully.
Find a space to sit or lie quietly.
Take 3 deep breaths allowing your thoughts to come to a pause.
Ask yourself: “on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the most fulfilled and 1 being the least fulfilled, how fulfilled am I in my love life? My spiritual development? My career?
Allow the answer to come to you intuitively, which is generally the first number to pop in your mind. Do not judge yourself or the number.
Do you have a 5 or below in any areas? List some activities you can do within the next 48 hours to fulfill those love-starved areas of your life.
