B is for Balance….

     BALANCE – “Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.” ~Thomas Merton
     Balance equals bullshit because for years I have not been standing upright.  Even though I am goal driven with aspirations of achieving more and hopes of improving my life so that my children know what hard work can yield, I barely know how to balance my life as a birth mom.  I have to live each day, day to day because I can be so grief struck that I can cry nonstop, have total mind shut down, sleepless nights, panic attacks and anxiety.  I just can’t shut off the switch of my identity of being a birth mom.  It’s something I choose, it something I prepared myself for but it’s not something I realized would take my balance away.
