We have been talking about eating nutritious meals and exercising. The topic of this week’s Writer’s Quotes Wednesday challenge is balance. Balance has many meanings and is broad enough to give you a lot of ways to go with it.
Balance is the key to a good life.
I think what we learn all through our lives, growing up is how to balance different things in life. As children, we are notoriously unbalanced, both in desires and activities. We want all or nothing. Treading a middle path is an alien concept at that age.
We all learn to create our own balance. In work, study, play, job and family. A happy person is the one who achieves harmony between different aspects of life. The sooner we can get to this ideal condition, the better adjusted we will be in life.
Adult life is the time when we are torn in many directions. Finding balance through spiritual convictions and faith, strengthens us immensely. I feel that for myself, faith was a very strong influence which molded my thoughts and actions. Life gets stability and balance if it is supported by faith.
Ah, yes, the desire to have everything and do everything strikes us a bit late in life. When we think that we are running out of time. It like a runner who is seeing the finish line and wants to make that last effort. But it’s not possible to do that. So just relax with what you have achieved, savor it and enjoy the feeling of having achieved your goals.
Lastly, be kind to yourself. Think that you have the right to enjoy days off and kick back, with nothing on your agenda. This is also a vital part of living a balanced life.
As I said earlier, balance in the key to a good life.
