Losing Balance

It's true that I've been a little quiet this month.... And as easy as it could be for me to say, "I've been busy," the reality is that my priorities and focus have been somewhere else for a bit.

The month of March has had me not only burning the candle at both ends, but attaching extra wicks up and down and around the entire candle and lighting them all on fire - all at the same time.

I very quickly realized that it was just too much. I was skipping meals, I stopped doing yoga, my sleep schedule was all messed up, and I was judging myself harshly for "neglecting" parts of my life/business. I was teetering on a very precarious line of functioning / not functioning.

Then I sat back last weekend and watched Eat, Pray, Love. I cried hearing the beautiful, flowing rhythm of Italian spoken on screen. I smiled with my liver. And I took in all of the juicy wisdom, including:

"Sometimes to lose balance for love is part of living a balanced life." -Ketut Liyer

Yes, I know he was talking about romantic love.... but it still applies because I am completely in love. From my private clients and my group clients to strategic planning for my two women's movements...... I am completely in love. My heart is so deeply invested in what I'm creating right now.

I had to step back and remember that THIS is what it looks like to be an Inspirational Woman in the world. We don't get it perfect. We don't get to give 100% to all million areas of our life. We just get to focus on what's in front of us right now that is important - and give THAT our all.

In the coming months you will be seeing huge announcements regarding both The AMPLIFY Collective and The Inspirational Woman Project, as well as a launch for another round of The Group Sessions
