A Balancing Act


NOTE: This post is not a "pity-party/woe-is-me" thing, as I'm simply sharing a very brief insight into some of the reasons as to why I may act so "up-and-down" from time to time.

For me, finding a sense of balance feels harder some days more than others. I'm not talking about balancing life and work priorities - we all deal with those. It's finding a positive balance between my varied other health issues.

It can be a frustrating journey, from day to day. Sometimes from hour to hour. All these different conditions sometimes interact, conflict and trigger / bounce-off each other... it's a juggle for me to keep on top of it - some days are better than others.



Plus, some days - I forget I am not well. I know that sound ridiculous, but it's the whole randomness of it all that catches me unawares, from time to time.

Yes, it's an interesting  journey... constantly discovering new aspects of it all. I didn't receive the text-book on "How To Live Life" when I started - I must have missed that memo - as we all did.
"WE MAKE THINGS UP AS WE GO ALONG"
It's one big discovery.

 Yes, it's a "Ying/Yang" thing, I'm finding.
I have this framed picture on my wall... over 30 years ago, a very good friend gave it to me for my birthday... I guess the Universe already knew ahead of time, that this concept would become more realistic for me, later on in life?

Yes, some days it's just easier to wear a mask, and pretend everything is going OK... saves a lot of explanations. Plus then I don't feel as though I'm "bringing everyone else down."
One of my "masks" is often acting "silly"... it's often easier to laugh than it is to cry.
