Where did the balance of life go? What does balance me to me? Before becoming a working mother balance was about getting enough exercise, food, playtime with Felix, time with Jason and having a little solo time on my own to rejuvenate Quite simple, really relaxed.
Now I am on my way to finding my new rhythm and what balance looks like for me now. I’m settling more and more into the rhythm of my work days. During the summer, The Lifelong Learning Center (where I work) moves to closed on Fridays which means, yes, I get Fridays off. Fridays also means I will be working my forty hours in four days. It seems daunting and exciting to me as I have no idea what that feels like, but I am thinking Fridays off with family and friends will be worth it. I’ll keep you posted – he he.
I am getting an internal nudge telling me it’s time – time for what? Time for me to show up and live out the dreams I have been fantasizing about for years. And guess what – YES it is time. Now I am ready to really show up. For those of you who know me, yes I do and have shown up before, but there’s a different part of me that has been whispering to me for years; well, The little whisper is no longer quiet, my spirit is speaking it’s desire to shine brighter, to be seen and to serve. What does this mean? It means figuring out I fit all my passions into my life while also working forty hours a week. It means pushing my self to an internal edge of enough and then going a little further to grow as a human being. It means, including my family in these endeavors so get to play with them and play with my work. It means continuing my Nia practice at work while working and utilizing the beautiful studio on my breaks to move my body. It means speaking up, sharing my passions and helping others find and share theirs.
I will still be writing on my blog, more frequently than the past few months. I will be tweaking my site. Making maggieschlarb.com more resourceful and informational. I will be creating a newsletter, this way I can share with you when I post as well as when I will be teaching classes. (There is an newsletter sign up on the right hand side of this page if you want be included).
Now I ask you…is there something nudging you? Are you listening to the that nudge?
