It is difficult lately to find the balance. More difficult to simultaneously juggle the emotions of good news, accomplishments and the joy (albeit monotony) in the everyday with loved ones' cancer, a friend's anguish over her brother's murder and just garden variety disappointment. Throw in the natural peaks and valleys under my own roof, and it is a lot to manage.
Despite the cliche, I try to notice the beauty - in the laundry, in the PB&Js, in coffee with friends, in my new nail polish...there is plenty if I open my eyes to it. And simply showing up for friends who are jumping over life's inevitable hurdles, helps focus the light a little more keenly on what is most important.
How do you juggle life's ups and downs?
