Finding balance in your life

Its been a while since i updated this blog, in fact it was April this year. Time has flown by and we have been busy getting used to a new lifestyle after finding out that Garys' PSA level was on the increase a year after having his prostate removed and having great readings up until the fourth 3 monthly check which should have heralded checks going to 6 monthly but he is now still on 3 monthly checks and they are monitoring the levels, if they reach their "magic" number they will recommend radiotherapy.

More research on our part led us to try the alkaline and raw diet which ensures all the food you give your body is as nutrient rich as possible. It hasn't been easy but it has really opened our eyes to how far off the track the Human Race has gone from living in harmony with their bodies and Mother Nature and perhaps a bit too far for our own good.

In some ways i feel that my Spiritual Journey has slowed right down, probably because i have had to shift more focus on the lifestyle change and family life. In some ways though it is all that i have learnt along the way  on my Spiritual Journey that is helping us deal with life on a day to day basis and helping us embrace uncertainty in a more positive way than i believe we would have several years ago.

I know i personally need to find the right balance in my life which is something i seem to find for a short time and then lose it again. Sometimes it feels like i am on a treadmill and getting nowhere and i know i need to find that time to refocus my thoughts and find that inner peaceful place that i crave when life seems to be going at rocket speed and dragging me along with it. I guess being aware that things are out of balance is the first step and i do get the odd glimmer that i'm on track and getting there, in fact i think i'm getting there day by day, some days it feels like i have taken a step back again but that just pushes me on to keep trying and keep pushing forward and i know i will find that balance again. Finding time or perhaps i should say making time to update this is a positive and its important to me so i  know i'm getting there.

Once there again I will need to work hard on maintaining it going by my previous experience. What can i do to make sure i keep that balance?

I think i need to treat "my" time to meditate, read, refocus, listen to music all of which lift my Soul as important as i treat the family commitments because if i am balanced i have seen it in the family, they are more balanced too and i am in a better place to be the positive role model they need when their lives aren't quite in balance. See i know what i need to do but why do i find it so hard to do?

Answers on a postcard please :) or better still any advice, comments gratefully received below.
