- Beach Home Rentals
This time last year I was in love. I was madly, passionately, in love with a man I thought I would marry. I spent all my time with him, I neglected to find a balance between his life and my personal time. Looking back, I wish I would have had more boundaries for my heart because when it didn't work out, it was devastating. As I reflect on what happened this time last year, my emotions are mixed. I feel I may have played the fool. I know it seems naive for someone to believe in fairy tale love, but I wanted it. I let a fairy tale idea take over the reality of what was.
Balance is a hard concept for me. I am a go hard or go home kind of gal. I don't mess around when it comes to relationships with friends, or loved ones. Sometimes I over extend myself. I want to be in too many places at once and I lose myself.
Sometimes we need to settle our lives for a moment and take a moment for self. On rainy days like today, I like taking a moment to relax my mind and listen to the sound of the rain hitting the pavement and think back to a simpler time when I didn't care if I got soaked from head to toe.
Finding a balance in life is hard, but one thing I find that helps is choosing different ways to unwind. Instead of TV late at night, being quiet is sometimes one of the most therapeutic, mind renewing things we can do.
I'm going to the beach today, I'm going to make the effort, because sometimes the balance isn't between work and play, or work and others, sometimes the balance we need to find is between everything else and finding ourselves.
