I did a bit of a mammoth (for me) journaling session this morning - not with any real purpose in mind, just as a way to clear and make sense of some of the thoughts in my head - and one of the ideas that kept finding it’s way out was that of balance.
Now balance is an idea I have written about many times on these pages, but the thought I was exploring in my own pages was that everything needs a counter-balance:
healthy eating needs the occasional treat;
early mornings need the occasional lie-in;
reading and study need the occasional cat video…
Hard work and focus leads to mastery, but without the counter-balance of flexibility and relaxation, things can quickly go from passion to chore….
