Weekly Peek: I will strive for balance in all that I do

Balance.  What does balance mean?  I mean really, really mean, not like the webster definition.


To that – I have no answer.  I have no answer because I don’t know what “having balance” means.  I don’t know how to attain it.  I don’t even know where to begin. Does balance mean the amount of time I keep for myself and the time I give away to others?  Does balance mean being able to love wholly and be loved wholly? Without reservation?  Does balance mean a healthy dose of healthy and unhealthy living?  If so, how does one go about changing just about every aspect of their lives in hopes of achieving “balance”?

The fact that I don’t have balance, don’t know how to achieve balance, don’t even know where to begin…probably means I need shift my priorities and start learning “balance”.   Physical balance – health and enjoyment.  Spiritual balance – believing and questioning.  Emotional balance – feeling but not consuming.  Mental balance – responding but not reacting. 

Actually, maybe I do know what balance is…but I still don’t know where to start.

What does balance mean to you?
