Work, love and play are the great balance wheels of man's being (Orison Swett Marden)
Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance (Brian Tracy)
If you wait until you are sure you will never take off the training wheels (Author unknown)
Life is all about balance and moderation. I think we should be kind to ourselves. Have shock absorbers so we do not have too hard and bumpy a ride. Have enough time to play and love and eat and work. Our holistic selves also need to be alignment: body, mind and soul. If our emotions are out of alignment: they will play havoc with our health.
Feed your body; a little of what is “bad” for it is sometimes a good thing. Feed your mind: read, discuss, communicate. Feed your soul: listen to music, look at beauty, smell the earth, taste your lover, feel textures.
Make sure you oil your wheels with whatever lubricant (had to spell that carefully) is available in your life right now. Smile. It will help balance your wheels.
