Maintaining Life's Balance

To circle back to the subject of maintaining life’s balance, I was reminded of the importance of this concept recently when a friend shared a dream about chasing the perfect image (photograph) and the joy that resulted, just from the chase!

The question I pose to us all is this:  “What am I chasing?” 

Image? 

Career Success? 

Relationship?  

Fitness?

Giving Back? 

Relevance?

Whatever the answer is, for any of us, I offer the following reflections:

The chase should bring joy.

The chase should not be a single-minded pursuit, but, a joyful component of a well balanced life.
