Moments of Bliss : The Art of Balancing Our Life

Hello there Bliss Seekers, I have to admit that this is not the post I initially sat down to write! It seems I am having one of those days where I just can't string the right (or any) words together. My mind is wandering like a kindergarten student that is high on sugar. I simply can not concentrate which makes me feel so frustrated. I keep reciting the philosophical words of Confucius over and over in my mind "It doesn't matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop". I'm trying really hard not to stop right now by the way.

The truth is life has felt rather hectic of late with 'busy' becoming our new normal. I feel as though I'm running around like a crazy woman just trying to fit everything in. My head is full of new ideas for future adventures, my notebook is full of scrawled notes and action plans, but I just can't seem to generate  any real results. I'm beginning to realise that waiting for things to calm down so I can become productive in my own pursuits is completely unrealistic. This is our life for now; full, fun, interesting, busy, active, a little bit crazy at times and just plain hectic. I have to stop allowing being busy in life, from inhibiting me in fulfilling my own creative endeavours. I am confident that learning to go with the flow while planning and managing my time more wisely, instead of stressing out when things don't go to plan, will serve me well. "Productive flexibility" I keep telling myself. 

With that said, I'm off to the beach for a swim (the water has warmed up to 21 degrees already, and it's still winter!) to clear my mind and refresh my spirit, followed by some serious action because today, I actually have some precious time! Sending You Much Bliss, Heather xx

  1. Hi Heather, "Going with the flow" is something I've heard a lot when I was in Australia. That's what I loved about your country. People seemed very laid back and going with the flow. I think that definitely works, especially when you can not help what's going on and you have to accept it.
    Let it go, let it flow.
    I hope the swim did you good and enjoy that you have so many ideas. There is enough time to work them out. The best is that you've got ideas right! There are moments when you don't have any ideas or creativity. That are moments I hate as well.
    No worries ;-) xx

  2. You're so right Claudia, at least I have ideas! The swim served me very well, thankyou. I have to remember to do it more often I think. Yes, we Aussies certainly have the unique ability to 'go with the flow' when we need to, perhaps even a little too well sometimes! Much Bliss, Heather xxx
