Finding Graceful Balance
Aug. 17, 2015
While walking on the beach this evening, I pondered why so many things in my life still seem out of control. Wasn’t the beach setting supposed to bring much-anticipated balance back to my world?
As I continued to stroll along the breezy shoreline, I was softly reminded that Balance, just like Happiness & Peace, is not a destination; it’s a journey. The ups and downs in life are as natural as the sea’s ebb and flow.
The key, I heard the wind whisper, is to be gentle on one’s self during the process.
“Breathe,” said my soul. “Balance is earned, not given. Every day you will work towards it, but not because it’s a race. Now, breathe again. Do you feel better?”
“Yes,” I said.
“Good. There’s your Balance.”
Moments after having this splendid epiphany, the local sand artist Kenny walked right next to me and built this gorgeous yet simple masterpiece. Graceful balance.
