Have you checked your balance lately?
No, not your bank balance. I'm talking about your YOU balance, as in, Are you feeling solid and steady? Are you like the tree, bending with the winds of life's daily demands, or are you feeling less rooted and more prone to teetering?
Balance is something we tend to take for granted. And when we're in the overwhelm of things, it may even seem elusive (especially on some days--believe me, I know!). But in truth, we rely on balance in almost every area of our lives. Nature has its own equalized systems. Without them, plants wouldn't grow, clouds wouldn't form, and entire ecosystems would collapse. The economy, too, relies on checks and balances, and we all know what happens when things are off kilter. Even our bodies, when at optimal health, remain innately in balance through what's called homeostasis. Consider your body temperature. To maintain that ideal 98.6-degree sweet spot, countless systems are on constant alert to help us adjust to heat, cold, exertion, illness, hormone fluctuations, and so forth. Pretty miraculous, don't you think?
Why, then, do we have such a difficult time balancing the rest of our lives? And how can we harness that inner life-regulator to keep our thoughts, actions, and intentions in harmony?
