balance and honesty

this life we’re dancing through, it’s easy to get swept off your feet – and not always in the most romantic of ways.

it’s overwhelming when days sweep in that scream
you have got to get your shit together.

those days where you’re constantly bent over, picking up all the pieces that can’t seem to remain attached.
pieces that chip off and just shatter and scatter.

pieces of you.

and just like that, your balance is compromised.
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
my reality tries to keep pace with a never-ending marathon way of life. 

my balance is hit or miss at best, and the honesty i share with myself is covered with a dash of pure, unrealistic optimism. sometimes, with a large side serving of delusion.

my head functions steadily on the jam-packed mode.
cluttered with to-do's, thoughts, feelings. with goals and, yes, fears. 

i’m rambunctious, as there is so much to love and i can't help but love it all.
there are people to please, places to be, and deadlines to meet.
i get swept away in a pursuit to do it all. perfectly.
error on my part, this is grounds for continuous crash landings. 

a poster child for simultaneously spreading myself too thin and piling another scoop of chaos on my plate,
i’m perhaps preaching to the choir with you. 

the underlying truth always stands that we’re just human. 
and perfectionism is the nastiest practice to entertain. 
so how do we ween ourselves off of this entropy?
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 
realizing our balance doesn’t start in our feet but is sustained from our thoughts is how we regain our balance.
and the honesty we muster isn’t just the culmination of words that sound nice on their way out.
it’s our acceptance of who we truly are. 

the honesty kicks in when you know it's okay to just be and be undone at that. 
it's okay to just stop and breathe – to sit in that honest moment for as long as needed – and balance it all out. 

because that's what’s really needed, bona fide. 
balance within yourself, and honesty.
