Harmony of Irons in the fire. Balance of Hats to wear.

Published October 1, 2014 by katiekieffer

Writing. Blogging. Business building, working ON and IN. Time. Motherhood. Homeschooling. Breakfast, lunch, dinner. 7 furbabies. Fledgling garden. Goals of having a flock of chickens next year (since we haven’t made progress on that in the last 2), a cattio built, and a whole host of other things on a “to do” list.

Can I clone me? A more organized, never-needs-downtime homemaker-gardener-cook-maid-laundress-perfectphotofinder-bookkeeper-marketer-virtualassistant- and best off all – massage therapist? Oh, and can she be invisible, the kind of Genie where everything is just magically done? THEN I can totally rock this thing out 🙂

Ok, ok, I get it. HARMONY. *OM* Harmony.

New Hair Cuts Summer 2014

If you’ve been following me or even look over the this blog, my twitter and facebook, it’s evident that I’m inconsistent. Even with all the tools in my toolbox, all the things I know, consistency has eluded me. There has been much improvement, thanks to ThetaHealing® yet there is still some inner work needing done.

I tend to think were I single, without kids and maybe only one or two cats that I might be more consistent with business, blogging, and my house would certainly be cleaner. Just re-enrolling my kids in public school would give me 5 days a week of freer brain space…maybe. Yet there is nothing I would trade for the love and adventure of all these choices I, along with my husband, have made. Cliche as it may be, it’s the life I have chosen.

When it comes right down to it, I do the best I can with where I am at in every moment. Some days are well balanced. Some days (or weeks) are spent on little other than business, as there were many weeks of my learning curve getting ready for the Divine Biz Gifts Giveaway of July 2014. My kids went largely on their own (at 11 & 14, they can handle some of this!) and did ok. I still felt as though they were being neglected. I have big ideas of my kids graduating from homeschool and testing out of the first two years of college. I myself could not manage to test out of the first two years of college right now, but hey – they can if they want to! Well, they’re not exactly motivated by this. Or at all much of the time. Still, big ideas and dreams for them…alas, they have their own hopes and dreams, and mine for them matter not. As long as they’re happy, responsible, kind people, then my husband and I have done well as parents.

Wild variety of tomato…YUM.

Likewise, the last several weeks have been home, garden, children and my own care based. Little to nothing to be consistent with business. I want to be in front of people. I have goals of having workshops every month and a full calendar of clients (my full calendar is less than 40 hours a week BTW) at least two weeks out. I want an active, helpful blog. I want interactive, fun, informative stuff going on in the social media realm.

HARMONY. How the hell do I get this all in HARMONY? It’s getting better, bit by bit…pixel by pixel…there is improvement. Still, it’s more like harmony over seasons, like the season is chunked into 1st month…garden. 2nd month…kids or biz, depends on what’s happening. 3rd month, biz or kids…again depending. The goal is to have this harmonized within a WEEK. The flow of all these things in harmony in a week. Everything getting attention, love and care every single week.

Wild Tomatoes and a lettuce

Any of you deal with this? Do any of you “get it”? I know you do – even if it’s not building a business or homeschooling, you’re juggling something.

Please, for the love of all that is beautiful, sane and loving…how do you do it? Do you have sleepless nights that lead to the following day being a total wash because you can’t think, function or keep your eyes open? Do you ever feel like your children aren’t getting enough of you at times? Do you have to take some of those irons out of the fire and rotate them differently, maybe more slowly, or set some aside altogether? Do you get short-tempered and snap at the slightest annoyance when working on reduced sleep?

Do you have a human story to tell?

What do you do to that aims you (successfully or not) toward balance and harmony?

What thoughts run through your mind?

What programs/habits/behaviours do you find yourself re-playing that are other than serving you?

What about the programs/habits/behaviours that support you?

How do you effectively obtain the effective help you need from others? (and do you accomplish this without needing to melt down and act batshit crazy?)

Truthfully, I have no concrete idea of where this blog post is going, or what I expect of it. If you’re reading and have made it this far, any stories, tips, tricks, or ideas is appreciated.

Finding – and maintaining – balance and harmony is important. Making a go of the choices I have made is important. I LOVE doing ThetaHealing® and have every expectation that this will be successful. I LOVE having my kids home, knowing they are safe, cared for and truly learning (even if it’s not always what I think they should be learning – why should they wait till adulthood to learn about things they love?). I LOVE my furbabies, all seven of them, and we really do need more space for the feline babies. It is important to me to have a thriving garden that I can go clip fresh greens for salads or smoothies. It is important to me that my hubby have some help in supporting our family financially, so he can pursue more of the things he enjoys and the children can do more of the things they want to do…and I can do more of the things I want to do.

DYDNA Money Graphic

Doing this workshop made a HUGE difference in how I experience money. It’s easier, it comes in easier. It goes out more mindfully. This was a great start on improving my relationship with money 🙂

Balance and Harmony. I have worked on these ThetaHealing® style and it’s made some serious improvements…and there is more to work on to have consistent balance and harmony amongst all the hats that this woman wears.

Somehow it all seems to work out. It’s time for that to be more consistent. If I could change on thing in my life today…this is it.

How did you get to consistency? If you’re still on your way, what are you doing that’s working? Not working?

If you could change one thing in your life today….what would it be?
