Do you feel like you are not fully you? Like you are holding yourself back, waiting for something to change about where you are and what you do? Are you overburdened by the day to day stuff that has extended into being your whole life? Is this how it is supposed to be, does it really feel like it? You know the answer is no, there is more but what is it? There is a balance between your duty to job, family, even life and what you really are meant for.

Do not let all that you are compelled to do every day override you as a person. This life, your life, this very moment is yours. It doesn’t belong to anyone else. When you feel overwhelmed, is it from what you feel other people’s expectations are of you? When you are fully engaged in yourself and doing what is right for you, the balance will come out. Do no put yourself second in life. You only have the very moment you are in to make it better. Do not wait until tomorrow to connect and see what you need, do not put yourself off. You and your happiness are the most important.

Everything about your contentment will spill outward, to your family, job and life. Bring yourself into the front of the equation. Do what you need in the moment you are in; otherwise, discontentment will follow and affect all around you. It may seem hard or impossible to put yourself first. How can it be done? Remember, it is your life. With that in mind allow a little escape to find balance for yourself. What do you need to feel more at peace and content on a day to day basis? Is it silence for a moment, a walk alone, saying no and doing something for yourself? Start small and grow into big, give yourself the gift of beginning.

You are not here to please everyone else; you are here to live the best life you can. So start doing it; it is okay to let go for a moment and realize you can do something for you. Give yourself the time and space to find balance and what you need. Seek it out and reward yourself by doing it. Again, it will benefit all if you are happier but most of all the affect will be for you.

Author's Bio: 

I found myself from a very early age always seeking, on a constant quest to understand. I feel most comfortable learning and this desire correlates with a need to connect and help others. That is why in the beginning I chose acupuncture as a career, it seemed like a perfect fit. But I found a lack of compassion directed towards the center of being, not only in myself but others. I ended up in a situation that changed all this. I found who I was and who I am meant to be. It all clicked and came together. My desire for knowledge and eternal desire to really see and help others has brought me to this place in time, to this place with you. Allow me to help you feel complete, like stepping into that perfect spot, that place meant for you in your own life. Connect and feel the difference not only in yourself but in world around you.
