What’s up, Wolfpack? I just came back from my garden where I tried out my new slackline. Man, it’s harder than I thought. I’m casually longboarding since a few years which is why I thought I might have a solid balance. But apparently, I don’t lol. But while struggling to find balance on the slackline, I had an epiphany.
Life is the same.
Balance is everything. But very often it’s difficult for an individual to find the right balance.
The balance between work and family, hustle and chill, health and enjoyment, goal-setting and living in the moment.
There’s almost always two extremes, and you move somewhere in between, struggling to find balance.
While there are a lot of people out there who live in one extreme – be it the alcoholic, the ultra-spiritual guru or the „Hustle 24/7„-guy – I believe that balance is essential for a happy and fulfilled life.
I always was like this. I always tried to see and understand both sides and choose my path in between.
For example, I do „hustle“ a lot (a.k.a. I just get my shit done), but I also really love to have free-time, meditate or enjoy time with my girlfriend.
Also, I wouldn’t describe myself as an introvert or extrovert. I love spending time surrounded by a variety of people, but I also need time for myself from time to time.
Another example is nutrition. I eat healthy, nutritious food every day. But I also find time to eat an „unhealthy“ snack daily, and I do a cheat day about once a week. (If you eat enough vitamins and minerals and take care of your macros and calories, it’s not even „unhealthy“ to eat snacks or junk food. There actually is no such thing as „unhealthy“. But that’s a whole nother topic lol.)
