finding balance

Anything I’ve ever done that requires some sort of balancing tends to be difficult.  I took gymnastics for 12 years and have memories of being terrified of the balance beam.  I loved it – it was one of my favorite things to practice – but it was so scary nonetheless.  Yoga is another thing I love that requires balance.  There are certain poses that can be very intimidating to try, let alone hold for 8-10 breaths, but those tend to be my favorite ones.  Finding that kind of balance can be very rewarding, but it takes a certain amount of focus and calmness to achieve.

Balance:

equal distribution

to bring to or hold in equilibrium; poise

to arrange, adjust, or proportion the parts of symmetrically

mental steadiness or emotional stability; habit of calm behavior, judgement, etc

I think most people search for some kind of balance in life, a happy medium of sorts that will even everything out.  In order to find it, you have to determine your priorities, which is a whole other ballgame in and of itself.

I’ve been working on it a lot lately – finding balance.  The little white pill I take every night helps some, of course.  Some days are wonky and all over the place, but others are a fairly even mix of everything that is most important to me, and those are the days I strive to repeat.  Even if that means I don’t brush my teeth until 3pm and I only fix my hair once a week, it feels good.  “Fix my hair” might be a strong way to describe it.

Focus = Balance

To re-word scripture (is that allowed?):  Where your focus is, there your balance will be also.

It makes sense.
