Finding balance in 2020

Here we are, a little over 130 days into 2020 and I am giving myself a balance check. For a sliding scale of 1 being out of balance and 10 being perfectly in balance, I am going with an 8. Here is a quick dip into my year so far.

I started the year off with a big goal of finishing my coaching certification within the first quarter. And I nearly made it! In early April all classes and testing were done. Also checked off was my Energy Leadership Index (ELI) assessment certification. I gave myself the first quarter to not only get those items in check but to adjust to my new position as a Marketing Director.

But then last Friday showed up and things took a big shift. I have officially hung up my Marketing Director hat and am officially wearing my life coaching one. It was a choice I didn’t think I was going to make for a long while but life happens, things shift and all roads pointed to here.

Scariest part was making this shift in the middle of the pandemic. But I am choosing faith over fear. The quote on here is also plastered on my monitor. I read it many times a day. Hopes… not fears… driving my choices.

So where are you at so far in 2020? It has been quite a year to remember. I recently asked people what they wish they could go back and tell themselves if it was January 1 all over again. I am not sure I would tell myself anything different. I really believe I am exactly where I need to be, doing exactly what I should be doing.

I miss all the senior year things for my son. I miss all the activities the springtime brings with my daughters dance. But I have really enjoyed the reduction in dealing with an over-busy schedule and the stress of making plans when frankly the pandemic has taught me, just sit still. Get reconnected with yourself.

I miss social interaction, but I have been video chatting (if you don’t use the Marco Polo app I highly recommend it) so much it feels like I know them more now than I did 3 months ago. It is forcing us to have different types of conversations. And those are the types that I love. The ones that fill my cup up and bring my life balance.

I need variety in my life. Variety is what gives me balance. And this pandemic has taught me that. What is your rating so far? Share it with me, I would love to hear!
