I received some lovely words of appreciation today and am so grateful for those who cross my pathway and inspire me to inspire others if that makes sense!

I’ve been really busy over these past few months (I’m sure I said that yesterday!) – well actually the whole of 2010 was pretty full on! And sometimes life has been one big juggling act balancing personal health and wellbeing with whanau and friends, with business, with creativity with a whole lot of stuff!

And there comes a time where you just have to say enough is enough. No more trying to juggle a zillion things at once! So this year in 2011 I’m saying NO. I’m not over committing myself to things and focusing on my vision and what I want to achieve in the future which involves a whole lot of other people and things of course! But sometimes we try and cram so many things into our lives and we forget that we are not machines and that we do need rest and BALANCE.

And expectation and pressure that we place on ourselves I think, is something that happens at the expense of one’s own health and wellbeing. And I don’t think anyone expects another to do something at the expense of their own health and wellbeing but I’ve seen so many people over these past few years live their lives this way and ultimately pay for it. I’m constantly asking myself how I can sustain myself in the most healthy way while doing the things I love and that are in line with my purpose and vision. And no where in there does it say at the expense of my own health and wellbeing.

Balance is key.

And life is a gift everyday! And if we honour ourselves by nurturing ourselves and leading balanced lives, then we honour life.
