Dear Self,

Life is a balancing act at the moment.

Money, life, joy, art, administration, friendship, creativity, alone time, movement, self-awareness, community, action…

It’s a process.

Life, that is.

And it is often quite an unclear one.

In my experience balancing is not what we have been led to believe it is. It isn’t holding onto one place.

Balancing is continuous movement.

It is breathing and recalibrating how all the pieces are arranged based on the latest information we have.

The human system will do this naturally (if I allow it to).

But for it to work I have to do a few things. I have to get good amounts of sleep and spend quiet time with myself, I have to be surrounded by people who love me as I fall over, I have to believe in the things I create even when they are ugly, I have to eat well, I have to laugh, I have to tidy up and do the little things I am avoiding, I have to take care of myself and let it all be messy whilst I sort everything out.

This is so much easier to say than it is to do.

Because when I am out of balance my tendency is to do the opposite to all of this. And that really doesn’t help.

Now I can see it I can’t run from it.

It’s time to breathe through the middle of this one.

Love

Luke
