Sometimes life will throw you off balance
Balance is something that a lot of us seek, it is a place where you are supposed to have peace even in the midst of full-mindfulness. Blah blah.
I’m an artist. I know the complete joy of being completely off-balance. Many times, you and I will do things even when you know it’s not the “balanced” thing to do. Some of the best moments of life come from experiences that make no sense for you to leap into.
An illness that throws you off balance may end up making you stronger in spirit than you ever hoped to physically be. A layoff from a job may put you off balance only to find that the balance you thought you found in that work was a false one. You may even throw away the pro and con list and run for public office in order to serve your community.
Yes, if you are a tight-rope walker you need balance, but honestly, you are a little off balance to want to walk the tight rope. If we have complete and total balance, we’ll never get off the teeter-totter.
