I don’t necessary believe in balance; I do, however, believe in harmony.
We shift through many phases in our lives and life is about creating harmony between the self, family, career, etc. If I’m deep in focusing on my career one day or week, I give myself permission to dive deep while also respecting the needs of my loved ones. I inform them of my focus and ask for them to give me space during the process.
On the flip side, when I home visiting my family in Louisiana, I make every effort to be fully present with them while also navigating my personal responsibilities. At the end of the day, my life is about creating harmony by honoring my personal desires, communicating with family and friends, and being present in each situation.
