Homeostasis is defined as: the tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent groups of elements of an organism, population, or group, as maintained by physiological processes.
No matter how together you have your life, sometimes things get messy. And when life gets messy, it gets out of balance. When this happens, how do we get back to normal..how do we regain homeostasis?
Just like in biology, it is natural for us to seek balance and harmony. But how we get there can be a mystery, especially when we are smack dab in the middle of the mess. And finally, after much work, I feel like I have finally regained the status of balance, where everything is working and working together correctly with everything else in my life.
Homeostasis, where home, family, career and love life are all not only well, but thriving. Oh, there is still much to do…like change the blinds in the house, clean, a pile of laundry to fold and a car that alays needs to be cleaned out. But over all, life is very good and I am enjoying the calm.
Finally, I have that wonderful boring little life that I always wanted, and it is marvelous. Quiet nights, reading, writing or snuggling on the couch. Cooking and enjoying good meals, a glass of wine with my sweetie, good music, and making memories. But not at the break neck speed as before. It’s more calm, more life giving, more…love.
The holidays are approaching and I am more excited than I have been in many years. A wedding to go to in the next weeks has me excited as well. Celebrating, meeting new people, and going someplace I have never been. Then Halloween, promising many knocks on the door as the neighborhood is full of children.
The family is celebrating at my house this year, and so much love will be around the table as we sit down to express our thanks. So many blessing for which to be thankful. Decorating and getting ready for everyone. Lots of cooking and the great smell of home baked goods coming from teh kitchen. A lovely fire in the fireplace to gather around with naughty hot chocolate and warm blankets. This year will be a celebration of everything – Love.
Homeostasis, a place of balance and inner peace It’s here. And when you are able to come to the table of life with peace and love, everything looks different. The work you do in this life, is from a deeper, much truer and more joyful place.
And so as I may not write as many entries at the moment, it is not because my heart is empty. Quite the opposite; my arms, my life, my heart, are all full and bursting at the seams with all I have been blessed. Homeostasis has never been more beautiful.
