The Balancing Act
Balance is key. In everything you do. Dance all night long and practice yoga the next day. Drink wine but don’t forget your green juice. Eat chocolate when your heart wants it and kale salad when your body needs it. Wear high heels on Saturday and walk barefoot on Sunday. Go shopping at the mall and then sit down and meditate in your bedroom. Live high and low. Move and stay still. Embrace all sides of who you are and live your authentic truth! Be brave and bold and spontaneous and loud and let that complement your abilities to find silence and patience and modesty and peace. Aim for balance. Make your own rules and don’t let anybody tell you how to live according to theirs. —Rachel Brathen
How does one begin to bring balance into life? It is an ongoing learning experience that shall last a lifetime. I believe that balance affects all aspects of your life, especially health. For me, balance comes from looking at the big picture. Any little one thing can seem overwhelming or wrong or right at the time, but take that into account of your big picture, your large goals, aspirations, and challenges. When looked at this way, the single items importance dwindles. As long as there is a yin to the yang life will find a way of balancing itself out, if you just allow it.
