Finding balance

      2 Comments on Finding balance

I was wondering if anyone else is struggling to find balance? I’m struggling to find balance in my life.  As a special needs parent, writer and husband, I’m constantly being pulled in a thousand different directions. 

More often than not, I find myself of center and being unable to juggle all the things in my life. 


Considering how long I’ve been doing this, you’d think I would be better at it but I’m not. No matter how hard I try I’m still dropping the ball somewhere.  One would think that I’m doing a really good job and if a few balls hit the ground along the way, so be it. 

That’s a great point and I’d love to agree with you.  However, if one of the balls that hit the floor represents something truly important to someone in my life, how is that okay?

I wish to find a way to be more proficient at what I’m doing.  I wish to find some sort of balance, so that I can do better by everyone in my life, including myself.

How do you find balance in your life between all of your family obligations, of which there are many inappropriate special needs family,  and the rest of your life?

It is hard to find balance, still looking for ways to calm the roller coaster we are on all the time. I guess it has been enjoying the “little things” together that make ya feel good, even if it dosen’t last but a minute… One day at a time without worrying yourself into a hole, which latley seems to be my speciality.


In my life – I’ve dropped the ball and had to.  For my son’s life – I’ve had to.  Lost all friends, family, etc.  He is 18 now and when you think things cant get worse – they do.  Three years into cancer – my son has regressed to being worse than before we started all the therapy… no language – he is so medically fragile b/c he is always in pain… headache day in and day out – severe reflux – eating/sleeping issues beyond words… lost and tired… I get you. I get it.  I poke my thumb in… Read more »
