The goal is balance.
We need balance between work and play. We need balance between giving and receiving. We need balance in thought and feelings. We need balance in caring for our physical health and our spiritual health.
A balanced life has harmony between a professional life and a personal life. There may be times where we need to climb mountains at work. There may be times where we put extra energy into our relationships. But the overall picture needs to balance.
Just as a balance nutritional diet takes into account the realm of our nutritional needs to stay healthy, a balanced life takes into account all out needs: our need for friends, work, love, family, play, private time, recovery time, and spiritual time – time with God. If we get out of balance, our inner voice will tell us.we need to listen.
Today I will examine my life to see if the scales have swung too far in any area, or not far enough in some. I will work toward achieving balance. April 30
