Balance……feels like we have a difficult time joogling along that fine line of stress and calm. While my mind was engaged in aerobic processing the copious volumes of morning caffeine, we zingled through the list of today’s schedule and a pattern began to materialize. I gasped in amazement as the image of a weightlifter formed within the haze of my mental fogstorm.
What amazed me about this image was the simplicity of the example. Ponder it! If you are lifting barbells, free weights, or whatever you choose to call them, it is important to make certain that you bung on the same weight on each end of the pole. Why? Because a loud crashing sound will be heard otherwise accompanied with many vile words, various screams, lots of bloodshed, and many injuries.
Balance is the key! Equal weight on both ends. It also is most helpful if you make sure that it is a load you are able to lift. Too much weight, and you’ll give yourself a hernia. Thus, the idea of balance comes back into play.
Why am I cantering on like some insane beetle? Hang on! Here’s my point:
Balance in life keeps us sane (for some to a larger degree than the rest of us). Too much stress and we find much pain. Not enough stress and we find ourselves unmotivated. Balance!
