I am trying to find my balance on the work tightrope that is suspended over my interests in home renovation, gardening, walking, writing, reading and hanging out with family and a few close friends. And there’s an opening, a creative knock at my door to invent other ways to support myself.
The body needs attention and the mind wants food and exercise. Tasks and grant work consume much attention in my free time. Balance between the way it is now and how I’d like it to be next year requires another extra project.
An even tone. The mindfulness to relax and laugh in between jaunts of busyness and workloads. That’s one thing necessary to tight rope walking and reinventing yourself: better keep your sense of humor.
