The Highs and The Lows

Jacqueline Jax- july 5

I’m sure you already realize this but just in case you have forgotten, it’s perfectly normal to experience highs and lows in life.

They say that you would never appreciate the highs if you didn’t have the lows and the more extreme the dip, the more we value it.

There is a part of me that doesn’t love change but also a piece of me that would be bored to death if things just always stayed the same. I suppose that’s why they say that finding your perfect balance is so important.

The perfect balance never seems to find me though and that leads me to this amazing quote..

quote about balance

“Balance is not something you find, it’s something you create.”

But the ironic thing is that if I ever do find the perfect balance, would I know it? I feel like there’s this need inside of me to constantly be wanting more.. More knowledge.. more energy.. more experiences.. and like the Einstein saying goes, “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”

To me there is more truth in acknowledging that once I get close to reaching that next goal, there is always another ahead of it. And then another ahead of that.

But isn’t that life?
The pursuit of something wonderful.. Something special and something more. I’ve never known a creative person to feel content in all areas of their lives. It could be that we are plagued with the knowledge that life is large and we have no real limitations. The only limits are those that we make up in our heads.

At the end of the day, whether it be a high or a low, try to focus your thoughts on what you can do today instead of what you think you can not tackle. And when you face a problem, instead of allowing your focus to fall on your fears direct your thoughts to how you can improve the situation and how you can grow from the experience.

Once you think it through and face it head on, it’s not nearly as scary as you think. You’ll see that once this moment passes.
