Find more balance in the midst of a busy life



Such an elusive thing in our lives today. It seems that we are all looking for it. And yet it seems as difficult to find as the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Could this elusiveness point to the fact that what we’re trying to achieve is futile? That balance is simply not achievable in this day and age?


The origins of the word balance


According to etymology, the word ‘balance’ has very old origins. It is based on late Latin (libra) bilanx ‘(balance) having two scale pans’, from bi – ‘twice, having two’ + lanx ‘scale pan’. So originally, we were talking about having two scale pans which could be balanced out.

Now, I don’t know about you. But the luxury of simply having two “pans” (read jobs, priorities, goals, demands…) on my hands would be an utter delight. I’m sure like me you are trying to juggle conflicting priorities – i.e. career, family, health, and well-being with education, earning money, making a difference, and more.


Give me two scale pans any day


So what’s a busy person supposed to do to get back to this place of balance where the even distribution of weight enables us to remain upright and steady? I’m more than happy to share with you what seems to have made all the difference in my own life.
