What is a Well Balanced Life?

What is a Well-Balanced Life?

CEOs will tell you that there’s no such thing as a balanced life. But that’s not true. Some people might prefer a life that’s unbalanced, but that option doesn’t appeal to everyone. A well-balanced life is a worthwhile objective for the majority of the population.

 What is a well-balanced life?

 It’s a life that has all the resources and activities that you most desire. It largely avoids feelings of sacrifice. A balanced life isn’t for those that want to be the best in the world at something. It’s not for the people that live on the edge or the fringe. It’s for regular people that want to enjoy all aspects of life, rather than focus on one thing.

 In short, a balanced life contains everything you want it to contain.

 All balanced lives have several things in common:

 1. Finances. If you’re struggling to pay your bills, your life isn’t balanced. If you can’t do the things you most want to do for financial reasons, your life isn’t balanced. Can you afford school supplies? A new transmission? Do you spend all of your waking hours trying to make enough money?

 ● You don’t need to be wealthy to have a balanced life, but you do need to have enough money.

 2. Transportation. Can you get where you need to be, when you need to be there? Transportation can take the form of walking, public transportation, ride services, friends, or your own vehicle.

 ● Reliable transportation is an important part of living a balanced life.

 3. Friends. You might need ten friends, or one might be plenty. However, we all need at least one friend. You can’t do everything alone.

 4. Intimate relationship. This one is optional for many people, but entirely necessary for others. Most of us do better if we have an intimate relationship, or a relationship with the potential to become intimate. Busy people often neglect this area of their lives, but that can be a mistake.

 5. Health. Poor health can quickly take the wind out of your sails. A well-balanced life includes a healthy mind and body. While your health isn’t 100% under your control, you have more control over it than you’ve probably been exercising.

 6. Time. If you don’t have enough free time, your life isn’t well-balanced. How much free time do you need? That’s up to you. However, if you don’t have time to do the things you really want to do, you don’t have enough.

 7. Fun. Everyone needs to have some fun once in a while. Can you quickly answer the question, “What do you do for fun?”? If not, you have some work to do.

 8. Personal growth. Progress is part of enjoying life. We feel great when we’re making progress. How have you grown and changed in the last six months?

 9. Career. Money is one thing. Your career is another. Though, they can be closely related. If you make plenty of money, but hate how you make it, your life could be better.

 Do you have a balanced life? It’s easy to know. Do you have the money and time to take care of yourself, your family, and to do the things you most want to do? Do you have the social life you desire? Do you have enough time in your week to have fun and grow personally? Do you enjoy your career?

 You already know if your life is balanced or not. If it’s not, what are you going to do to re-balance it?

Live Your Best Life in 6 Steps

Everyone is different. It’s not reasonable to expect that everyone wants to live the same life. But, to step outside the options that society deems to be acceptable can be a little scary. Our need to impress and be accepted can be very strong.

Perhaps you’ve never really considered what your dream life would be. It’s hard to hit a target that you’ve never identified.Follow these steps to imagine the best life you could possibly have and then live it:

 1. Be true to yourself. You can’t live your best life if you’re pretending to be someone or something that you’re not. The first step in living your best life is to admit to yourself who you really are. Be honest about your likes, dislikes, and dreams.

 ● Maybe you would like to live in a cabin in the woods and grow all of your food.

 ● Or do you love the idea of minimalism and frugality?

 ● Do you prefer animals to people?

 ● Would you like to live in a commune?

 ● Do you love to play the accordion?

 ● Would you like to travel the world like a nomad without a home base?

 ● Do you want to spend all of your time and resources saving the planet?

 ● Does the idea of having children horrify you? Or would you like to try for 13 kids?

 ● Choose what appeals to you. Any admiration or scorn you receive from others won’t last long enough for your cup of coffee to get cold.

 2. Make a plan. Relying on chance or luck is a losing game in the long run. If you want a specific life, it’s important to choose it and then make a plan to get there. Make a long-term plan that begins with something you can do today.

 3. Execute your plan. Many people love to dream and plan. That’s the easy and fun part. Unfortunately, few people ever take the first step in their plan. They never get started.

 ● Take some sort of action each day outlined by your plan. You don’t have to do an amazing amount of work each day to make significant progress over time. A little each day eventually grows into substantial results.

 ● The hardest part is getting started, so ensure that you get started as soon as possible. There will never be a perfect time to begin. Begin now and make the best of it. Everything changes once you actually begin.

 4. Learn from your mistakes. Neither you nor your plan is flawless. You will make mistakes and try things that don’t work. That should be expected. Decide that you’re going to learn from your mistakes, adjust your approach, and try again.

 5. Focus. Keep your attention on those things that are relevant regarding your plans. Reject nearly everything else.

 ● Why are you gossiping about your coworkers or neighbors?

● Still upset about how your ex cheated on you 13 years ago?

● Annoyed by the price of gasoline?

 ● What do any of these sorts of things have to do with achieving your goals and attaining your dream life? (Nothing.)

 6. Finish. You can’t live your best life if you give up on your quest to attain it. Keep going until you’ve arrived where you want to be.

Your best life is out there ready for you to claim it! Be completely honest with yourself, make a plan, and stick with it until you’ve arrived. The life you desire is attainable and within your reach. Do you have the courage to make it happen?

Take a chance on feeling happy and fulfilled. Chase after your dream life.

Repeat After Me – I AM….

I am uniquely special.

I know there isn’t anyone like me in the world. I appreciate my uniqueness. I appreciate my specialness.

I am learning to accept myself as I am. I am learning to love myself unconditionally. I am learning how to let go of self-judgement.

I am grateful for all the positive affirmations that are now becoming commonplace. I am grateful that others are starting to become more positive in the world. I am grateful for my uniqueness.

I can see how my uniqueness can serve the world. I am happy that I am special. I am happy that I see the uniqueness in all people. I am happy that I see all people as special.

I love diversity. I love creativity. I love when people express their true selves. I love when I have the courage to express my unique self.

I know that when I give myself permission to be my unique self, it opens the door for others to be their unique selves too.  I am grateful for the times I have had the courage to be my truly unique self.

I recognize that the more I express my creativity and uniqueness, the more it gives fresh ideas to others, so they can express themselves more fully. I realize that when we are all our creative selves, we bring more new ideas to the world.

Today, I am thankful that I have the courage to step out and be unique. I choose to be my unique special self. I feel greater self-esteem when I am my authentic self.

 Self-Reflection Questions:

1. What is unique about me?

2. What is special about me?

3. How can being my unique self serve the world?

Five (5) Years Later

This post describes who I was five years ago…..stay tuned for who I am now…

​2016:

I am a Self-Awareness Life Coach who has scoured the depths of my heart and soul. I’ve done all the personal development seminars, read a ton of books, and mined the gold of my own being. I look at every moment as an opportunity to get more connected with who I truly am, and my motto may as well be “know thyself.” I always encourage myself to lean more deeply into my fears and to move through them with courage and sincerity.

As a Life Coach, I help women step out of their shadows and fears of the past, take off their masks, embrace their own destiny, and truely connect to who they are.

I meet women where they are on their journey to authenticity through self-awareness exploration.

I am your partner on your journey, as I am on the same journey, discovering who I am and further identifying my innate gifts, talents, and expertise.

I am a loyal friend.  I like to genuinely connect to others. 

Whatever or whomever I commit to is my sole and soul focus.  

I give freely of myself to nurture the lives of others.
