Journal Entry Type #81: Balance is the Key to Life

Once in a while I check in with myself to see what I need to focus on on a more spiritual/earthly sphere. I’ll be the first one to admit I’ve been trying my whole life to have balance. I find it in different ways, some days more successful than others, and other days it’s a complete bust. Reminding myself of the person I am is something I need to do once in a while. This goes behind the physicality of having legs and arms even though they have too many scars (I scar really easily). It gets to the center of my being, what is inside what has not been paid attention to, and what is yearning to be heard. I offer the reminders given to me through meditation and cards. Take them as suggestions and nothing more.

  1. The phrase “do no harm” is often cited but rarely do we do no harm to others especially ourselves. Most people are aware of the mind/body connection. Does what propel us forward might be rooted in negativity? I hope not but there’s bound to be a few not so positive reasons.
  2. Everybody changes over time whether they realize or not. Those that have the courage and strength to change internally is what we are deep inside. Knowing where your boundaries are and when to stretch them to satisfy your hunger is the challenge of all people.
  3. Usually at the beginning of the year, we have a sense of renewal where dreams are revisited and resolutions are often broken within the first week. Humans should seek their ambitions all year round and see where it takes them.
  4. This is probably the greatest thing I’m working on which is not to deny my strength at the cost of being reactive and unhealthy. We often live in a fear based society and while it is good to be observant, it isn’t in anyone’s best interest to let that fear overwhelm you.
  5. Allowing yourself to grow naturally is very hard for most people. Everybody has their own rhythm and it’s easy for me to make it go faster when it’s not conducive to the situation.
  6. This is the second thing I’m still working on although it crops up here and there. What I’m talking about is toxic thoughts whether guilt, regret, and misunderstandings concerning others and myself. It’s not easy to release negative patterns but it’s worth it.
  7. Being a serious person, I rarely have fun. Even if I have fun such as watching a funny movie, I’m usually thinking and working on something to keep me busy. Watching a movie alone is not enough for me and I need to work on this.
  8. We should be open to new ideas and inspirations. Trying something new is good for the soul. I plan on doing new things or things I haven’t done in a long time due to the pandemic.

Lastly this is a quote that sums me up perfectly! No more and no less!

I’m fundamentally a busy person; I spend my time doing useful things and profoundly useless things!
