Creating Balance?

I have been thinking about balance lately. How to create balance in life?
When I was in school I would study, cram, pull all nighters and work hard to achieve my goals. The rewards were for the future. But there still needed to be a balance. So, on Fri/Sat night I would go out with my friends to clubs and blow off steam. We would dance and laugh and have a few drinks. If felt like the perfect balance to all that school work. It kept me balanced.
Fast forward to today...motherhood, family, etc... I love my family but where are the fun nights. I'm missing that. Feeling a little off balance.

Today during my lunch break I took out one of my doodle index cards and decided to do a doodle that was cram packed in one corner leaving the rest of the card blank. I wanted to illustrate imbalance.
Here is my doodle.

What do you think? How does it make you feel?

I hope you find balance in your life. I'm still working on it in mine.

Dear SITSah,

We must be kindred spirits because I am constantly searching for balance myself. Constantly. But your doodle doesn't strike me an strikes me as completely balanced. The chaos in the corner is off set by all the white space to the left. But then again, I only feel balanced when there is a little imbalance.

Love your site, by the way!

Well wow. That is amazing - it DOES make one feel off balanced and as if that corner was crammed full. This is a great reminder and I think I'm going to do some cleaning out!!
