There was a time when I didn’t care about balance. And then there was a time when I understood balance was needed but I saw it as something to happen over a lifetime. “Work hard and pursue your goals without rest while you are young so you can rest when you are old.” The problem with that is that you age too quickly and don’t know where all the time went.
And what about those unfortunate people who work hard to reach their dreams, sacrificing the quiet moments, sacrificing relationships and sacrificing others in their pursuit only to lose it all based on one bad decision?
Balance, even when you desire and value it can be hard to find. We schedule ourselves so tight with activities and appointments. We are going going going till we’re gone.
What does balance mean to you? What does it look like?
