What are the balancing acts in your life right now?

Are you trying to get enough exercise to feel good about that big ice cream cone you had last night? Maybe you’re balancing saving and spending money. Perhaps you’re getting up a little earlier so that you’ll be done with work in time to spend time with family or friends.

Balance is about mixing and matching, giving and taking. It’s about placing two small stones on one side of the scale to balance the single large stone.
