It’s the great white buffalo. Moby Dick. The Holy Grail. Everyone is looking for it. But the sad truth is: you’ll never find it. But it’s not there. It doesn’t 100% exist.
I’m talking about balance.
Remember balancing on a see-saw as a kid? Or standing on one leg? You wanted to prove you could do it. That you could hold a perfect position without quivering. Sometimes you did, briefly, and other times you failed.
When it comes to health and fitness, people are searching for perfect balance. Changing your diet is a constant balancing act between what you should do and what you want to do.
How do you go about balancing work, life, responsibilities, and your goals of weight loss or muscle gain? Balance is the perfect nirvanic state that you think is achievable. Here’s the truth: it’s bullshit.
You’re always teetering and tottering one side of the middle. You’re never perfectly balanced.
That’s not to say that striving for balance (or perfection) isn’t a noble course. But, it’s not about the attainment of the goal, it’s about the struggles and consistent effort to reach the goal. Accept that you’ll never achieve 100% balance and forgive yourself for not.
