Thinking about Balance

Are you on pointe dancing as fast as you can?

Balance, balance, balance, that elusive prize..........

This is a topic that has been on my mind lately. I have spent the last several months consumed by moving. First packing, then moving, now unpacking. Deocorating and settling in lay ahead. I am out of balance. All work and no play make Claudia miserable.

And what about you? Can you find time to balance your life? Are you all play and no work? Didn't think so... Finding that elusive spot in life where ying and yang meet, and harmony exists is a hard one. I find that every now and then we achieve it, feeling at one with life and the world. It is not always when we have the best of times, it can be amisdst hardship and privation, but creating that balance is a wonder.

How do some people seem to always be "in the zone" while others are medicated beyond belief to get somewhere out of the ozone? I think it is a matter of philosophy of life and living a purposeful life.

 So to some degree I think it is under our control.
Now isn't that an empowering thought?

Actually taking the time to think about how you want to conduct yourself and your life is not something I was taught. To create the balance that is harmony with your surroundings is the key. Living life with purpose is important, but remembering balance allows you to live the days you are given.

So, work some, rest some, play some, do something for others, do something for yourself, and before you go to sleep tonight, see if you got closer to balance.............

Until next time.........
