I recently read an article about Brooke Burke, who was on Dancing with the Stars. During the interview she was asked how does she balance kids, family and her very busy career. Her response was "the balance is in the chaos". After reading this I swear angels started singing and I had a massive "aha" moment. I find myself constantly seeking out this thing called "balance" (hence the name of my blog) but never seem to figure it out. Or when I think I have this equilibrium, everything shifts and life feels really chaotic again. To me balance started to feel like this unattainable phenomenon that just wasn't in my life plan. However, once I gave myself the permission for chaos this overwhelming sense of peace came over me. I began to understand that through the storm comes the calm. I realized that constant "perfection" ( whatever that means?) doesn't necessarily represent evolution and we survive because of evolution. Therefore, change needs to happen in order for balance to exist and this can feel chaotic. So thank you Ms. Burke for opening my eyes. If I don't accept constant change, which is inevitable, I will be completely out of sorts. But instead, if I just embrace the chaos, somewhere inside of that is this beautiful ever changing existence of balance.
