Choosing Balance Instead of Over Committing 07/30/2010
From my coaching program, a revelation occurred. It started with integrity and accountability; keeping promises to myself and others. It quickly shifted into a new form called balance.
I stopped making promises to myself and others I couldn't keep. Things like over committing myself with work, play dates or helping someone with their website. If I didn't have time or energy to do it, I said no.
This has been a huge breakthrough for me in finding balance in my life. I take on the work I can handle, I made time for me to exercise, eat better and indulge in things I truly enjoy. And though not over-booking myself is a constant thought process, I know it will eventually even itself out.
What keeps you for living an unbalanced life? Have you found the key to staying even and committed or is balance something your struggle with? Share your secrets and troubles!
In Balance & Love,
Have you met Kim Jenkins? Some of you might know her as @GratefulKim on Twitter. I had the pleasure of meeting Kim in person during one of my first stops on the Magical Eyes Tour. Kim is a fireball. If you need some extra pep, any day of the week, she is your go to gal. Kim has a website where people share stories about how they found their joy in life. If you have an inspiring story to share, you should reach out to her. Also, Kim is a Zumba Queen. She recently became an instructor and has a passion for Zumba like no one else! If you have a Twitter account, follow her. If you are one Facebook, befriend her and if you need someone to lift your spirits, reach out to her. You won't regret it. Thanks for being such an inspiration in the world, Kim!
