[Editor's Note: Finding balance as a human being is hard. As a parent, it can be even more difficult. In fact, it's hard to know what balance should look like on any given day. April at It's All About Balance does a great job explaining what balance is and is not. -Jenna]
I was at a used book sale where one of the taglines of a book on motherhood said that balance is a crock. I get that. That is, if one is not looking at what balancing means to them, and, perhaps more importantly, what balance is not.
Balance is not about being perfect in all areas. Balance is about deciding what's most valuable, most important to you, and making it a priority. It will mean that something will have to give. Balance is about discerning what are musts, and what can go.
