SERENITY & BALANCE (life-pacing)

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with people first...then business Ran Right Realty 636943 licensed to thrill

The human-being continues to fascinate and if you take a good look at yourself, you will marvel at this self-contained mobile unit that is perfect for planet Earth duties. What can it do and cannot do is an ongoing learning curve that never stays the same. Why? We are always in a state of change as we adapt to our circumstances

SERENITY DEFINED: THE STATE OF BEING CALM, PEACEFUL & UNTROUBLED

ALL WORK & NO PLAY?

We have the power, as stewards of all we survey, to increase, decrease, enhance or tone-down our activities and demands on the self. Some handle it better than others with stress reminding us that we need balance. Ignore that signal, illness may visit with you and if not, fatigue will. Steady yourself for the short & long haul

WHEN WE ARE ON

We know what is required of us via our commitments and responsibilities. We rise to the occasion of what we agreed to do either by virtue or necessity. We have discovered that applying 100% efforts almost always delivers the best results not to mention we feel good about ourselves. Being ON is invigorating. Why?

OUR SKILLS BANK

When you use your gifts, talents & skills to accomplish the necessaries, you get a deep satisfaction from employing & commanding that bank of skills. Regardless of success or failure, if we have done all we can, so be it. If it brings a pay-off, even better. One must use what they have or it atrophies, stagnates & surrenders

THE FUN PART OF THE POST

You have heard it said: work hard-play hard? Some people bring a balance to bear and a type of harmony kicks in. Others spend too much time in either too much play or too much work. Those that have found their "effectiveness" remain content

BROOKLYN RICHIE BALANCE

Having no rich uncles, I was forced to work hard and long... perhaps even longer (with all my mistakes) to reach the point in the above picture. Here I am the valleys, canyons and mountains, in the snow, while it is snowing receiving massive doses of inner contentment something money cannot buy and its free too?

RELAX WILL YOU?

When I am in my hustling mode, I don't like anyone one telling me to slow down or take time off especially while I am in the mix! Just remember to make the "mix" worthy and special, one has to visit with pure, planned, self-serving rewarding behaviors whatever that be for you. For those driven by fear, a quick word....

IF YA GOTTA GO, GO A CERTAIN WAY

I am convinced and have seen for myself that eventually what we are aiming at, wanting or desiring will manifest itself sooner or later if one applies their efforts. Don't doubt this. If using fear as a fuel, it burns hot & heavy leaving you exhausted. Just go about your business for business sake. It will happen

OTHER OFFSETS & REWARDS

People who exercise and practice moderation usually include FOOD as a reward. I eat healthy and I also eat whatever I want whatever that is. I don't live to eat but eat to live. But I am always reminded, when practicing my discipline of what that 104 year old lady said when she was asked: What do you wish you would have done more of?

EAT MORE ICE CREAM she says...

What's your wish I would have done choice? Just have it standing by ready for action. Why? You may not make 104, but you certainly should not be denied

Interesting post. One of our leaders in the office was asking people what motivated them and what their goals were. There were as your post mentions many who said they wanted to earn as much as they could, or some very large number. It came to me, and I said, I want to earn enough to lead the lifestyle I want to live, to travel to the places I want to visit, to eat at the restaurants we want to visit, etc. One lady said to me afterwards that it totally changed how she looked at life. I would say that was going to far as it was not that earth shattering a statement. But, it has taken me some time to get to this point and know what I want. Thanks for your post, I really enjoyed it.

When we start feeling stressed or overwhelmed, our balance is out of order and it's time to put down the work and/or problem and step outside. Get some air. Look at some clouds. Listen to some music. And then get back to it.

That's my story!

Serenity and balance is something I strive for daily and if I can reduce the amount of work that I do daily, I am sure that I can get to a more balanced and serene way of life.

Richie, like you I did not have rich relatives:)) so I had to do what you did:

 

Having no rich uncles, I was forced to work hard and long... perhaps even longer (with all my mistakes) to reach the point in the above picture.

 

Just to be clear we both live in California and no need to fight the cold winters:)Endre
