No One Gets it All

In life, you always give up something to get something. And when you give something up you get something else. That mindset is what helps keep you and life in balance. Awareness is the first step on the ladder of positive change. You can only manage what you can bring to conscious awareness, label, and describe. Become more aware of the way you are living your life and whether or not it is in balance. You can help prevent burnout or get back in balance by looking at the big picture and deciding what is most important at this stage of your life. Set your priorities and stick to them by working smarter and not harder, by saying ‘no’ when you have reached your capacity (and know what that is). An increase in conscious awareness could pay huge dividends to enhance your health, wellbeing, and balance. When something new comes into your life (a baby, hobby, or friend) be willing and proactive about giving something up (e.g., a museum-quality home environment, or doing all the house and yard work yourself). You can take charge of your life and pull your own strings, or you can allow yourself to be manipulated like a puppet. Pulling your own strings is the best way to stay in balance.
