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?
