125. Up All Night

Life is one whole thing, and a proportional approach to balancing time can relieve a lot of the distress that comes with a sense of not measuring up if you don’t achieve symmetry.
Freelance Road Trip Podcast with Alvalyn Lundgren 125: No Guarantees

Stress resides between an expectation of an ideal and what actually is.  When the expectation of the ideal — balance (symmetry) — collides with the messy realities of life, you can feel like you’re not good enough or you’re in the wrong lane. It’s all in what kind of balance you’re striving for. In this episode I present relief from the expectation of work-life symmetry in the form of a different point of view — asymmetry. Life is one whole thing, and a proportional approach to balancing time can relieve a lot of the distress that comes with a sense of not measuring up if you don’t achieve symmetry. There’s freedom in knowing life isn’t perfectly precise. There’s always a geometry to life, but there’s never perfect symmetry.
