Finding the Balance

Many people go through their adult lives taking care of other people with little focus on their needs. They fail to realize that in order to help and better the people around them, they have to take care of themselves first. They fall into a routine which leaves no time for fun or the necessary “me” time. Don’t get my wrong, there’s nothing wrong with being responsible however, when rare opportunities come along  sometimes you have to seize the moment. Of course it’s so much easier to be spontaneous when you’re single, child less and suffer from the “only child syndrome”. It’s especially difficult for the women who was thrown into adulthood at a very young age; the single mothers who want a better life for their children. Women are the pillars of most families and the bringer of life so we don’t have the luxury of being carefree. In addition we have a very small time frame to accomplish so much.

I myself have been trying to find the balance between work and play as I get settled into adulthood while trying to facilitate adventure. After all I am a nature lover and that crave for adventure is unlike any other. The need to travel has been at its peak lately and I can’t seem to tame the free spirit in me.

To all the hardworking, devoted people don’t forget that moments lost can never be regained. It’s not about doing things that’s over-the-top and beyond your means, but the little indulgences count. Life is the ultimate puzzle and no matter how frustrating it can be we must find ways to cope while continuing  to put the pieces together.

 

I No Longer…

I no longer tolerate the presence of those who don’t have my best interest at heart.
People who exude negative energy have no place in my life as they inhibit my growth.
I no longer conform to the ways of society in order to be accepted and/or validated. Through my spiritual journey I have realized that I should only be concerned with things that make me happy. It’s my life and I am the ruler of my destiny!
I have no tolerance for those who have no appreciation for nature and seek to destroy it.
I believe in a world of diversity; no one culture is superior to another. Arguments that are biased and simply lack logic enrages me.
I refrain from socialising with educated fools, and those who suffer from sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity irritate me.
I do not get along with those who are selfish and lack empathy. I believe in the power of love.
I have realized that patience is a treasured virtue and I refuse to waste it on things that don’t deserve the little i do have.
I have reached a point in my life where I’m learning to let go of the things that displeases me and accept the things I cannot change.
