B is for Balancing

I've blogged about balance before. And if you missed it, I blogged about balancing golf balls back in May 2010.

 Sometimes I find it hard to balance my life. You get so excited about something new or something hard, you forget to pay attention to the things that are important (read: family, spouse, children, eating--okay forget that last one, I've never forgotten to eat.) But my point is that you've got to find balance in life. I've spent the last couple of weeks on Agent Revisions (and I still ::squee:: when I say that) and finishing up two first drafts of work-for-hire projects. I've been busy. Oh and my "real" job. Sometimes I have to physically remind myself that there are other things going on. Other people doing important things.



Sometimes it takes a little time or effort. But balance is important.

By the way, these are absolutely real. No tricks. Golf ball balanced on top of golf ball. I wish I could do the third one. But I can't.

Kristine, this is a tough one for me too. It seems like if my writing is going well, then I start to struggle with something else.

Donna said...

Hello Kristine. That's cool with the golf balls. I need balance in my life in order to juggle everything. This is one challenge that I'll learn over time I imagine.

We all have things to balance and usually they are all important - family and work. Somehow we work it out and if we become unbalanced, thankfully, the signs are usually there. :) And yes, when you sell the book.

Wow, those golf balls are amazing. If I could balance my life like those golf balls, I'd have NO problem fitting everything in!

Balance can be tricky at times, and I go through periods where I have to stop and re-balance everything.

Balance is a beautiful thing when done well. I don't often.

I had no idea a person could do that with a couple of golf balls. I totally thought it was a trick!

Kate said...

Shelli said...

Balance is always a challenge. Let me know if you ever find the magic bullet for getting it right. :)

Catherine Denton said...

I agree! Balance is difficult (and I never forget to eat either-ha) . I'm amazed at those golf balls!

I think we all have a hard time finding a balance, but that thing w/ the golf balls is a great balancing act.

Thanks to everyone for their great comments. I know we all struggle with balance. And heaven knows, throw a cold or flu into the mix and forget it! Good luck to everyone!

Nicely done. Balance is important but it can be difficult to achieve at times but if it's left out of wack for too long things get rough. Good post.

Jolene Perry said...

I'm so digging into my golf bag which is sure to ruin what could be a relaxing afternoon ;D

I'm always struggling with balance. Kids, laundry, all the "normal" things that make up my day, versus the people screaming in my head for me to tell their story RIGHT NOW!

Julie Musil said...

Kris, you have been crazy busy, so it's easy to understand how other stuff gets buried. Yes, balance is not always easy.

I have to work at balance. Never forget to eat, though. I like food too much!

I struggle so hard for balance in my life. I think I'm doing better lately, but I always have to remind myself.
