Yeah, I’ve got it.
Life’s an ongoing rollercoaster in discovering balance, right?
For several years, I balanced a big volunteer commitment, writing this blog, training for races, having a social life and the occasional dating on top of a full-time job. That volunteer commitment ended in July, I decided to stop training for a big race in August, I did some pulling back from the blog and I had ALL THIS FREE TIME.
Not one to let grass grow under my feet, I threw myself into dating and my social life this summer. Which resulted in one of the most fun summers of my life.
With a total lack of balance. Which was fine at the time, but I’m trying to get back to that place where I wake up feeling recharged instead of already behind the eight-ball from staying up too late. I felt bloated from too much wine and food out, fun as it was. I’m spending some time trying to actively say no to things.
And it feels good, taking a little more time for myself. Time to write and think. To be more intentional. For now.
BRB, bubble bath time.
How do you slow down?
