Balance? Only for the faint hearted
I purposely waited a few days before posting for 2011 - I'm trying on the new year for size......hmmm....seems a reasonable fit and hope it can withstand the wear and tear of a go getting lifestyle of a roller coasting diva!!
|Falling down and getting up - that's balance|
Over the years, I've been aiming for a life of balance - work/life, male/female, to be or not to be etc...
Now as the second decade of the millenium dawns I'm hoping for less balance and more focus.
Balance suggests a state of equilibrium but it's an unattainable aspiration -in the vein of marrying a tall, dark, handsome prince or frog. Seeking balance is akin to sitting on the fence - going nowhere fast and watching the world go by. So what's wrong with that?
Balance is living in the comfort zone. Balanced people are not progressive. They play safe and never throw caution to the wind. Successful entrepereneurs and high achievers are anything but balanced. They are obsessively ambitious; they live, breathe and dream the dream. They are not measured in their actions, they are trail blazers and path finders.
|Find your Everest and conquer it|
Balance is unhealthy when it stops us taking risks. All of life is a risk of one kind or another.
Th is year my resolution is to be more of a risk taker. I want to test my mettle.....and why?.....because a balanced life is a life half lived.
Happy New Year!
