Ink-Dipped Advice: Spring Equinox & Balance

A Balance Break

Today is the Spring Equinox. That means that the daylight and the dark are in balance, and that, as of tomorrow, we continue to gain daylight and there’s more daylight than dark until the Summer Solstice in June.

Contrary to what “they” tell us, the Summer Solstice is NOT the start of summer. It’s Midsummer.

That’s a post for a different day.

The Equinox got me thinking about balance. At first, I was just going to toss up a post telling everyone to take a break.

But it’s more than about just a quick break. It’s about the daily shifts we have to do in order to balance our health, creativity, life, work, and financial needs.

Every day, we make dozens of adjustments from what we feel we’re obligated to do against what we want to do against what we thought we’d do against what we can actually get done.

Instead of fighting the adjustments, try to celebrate them whenever possible.

Be active, not reactive.

A rather overused phrase, but important. Let how you structure your day be a series of choices as much as you can, rather than a series of reactions.

Enjoy your Equinox.
