A New Word....balance

Wellness is the word I chose to focus on for 2013.
I'm adding another word
to go along with wellness....
BALANCE.

Without balance,
there can not be wellness.
and....
to have balance,
 I need to have self focus.

"Be aware of wonder.
Live a balanced life -
learn some and think some
 and draw and paint and sing
 and dance and play and work
 every day some."
                                              ---Robert Fulgham

To have balance
the experts say...
 that you have to make it
a top priority in your life,
 you have to see your balanced life
in your mind's eye
and,
you must love yourself
as the person you are now today.

So, now I am going to sit down,
figure out where I'm out of balance,
and take action.

It's another way to....
Savor the Day!

Happy balancing!

P.S. I love the writings of Robert Fulgham. Now there's a man who sees the sacred in the small everyday things of life! He can be uproariously funny, too.

Balance is the key for everything. I love seeing your painted portrait every time I visit your post. We have gentle rain today...peaceful. Have a glorious day! Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Wellness and Balance hand in hand. A very good reminder and a gorgeous photograph!
Find beauty in each day!

I as well love your portrait where I see it all the time. Now, must think on that word "balance", and since I started commenting at the bottom of my list, it's time to get more balanced and do something else. So glad to leave with that word!

I think balance was my word for this year. I've forgotten. Think that's significant? Hah!

Nice photography. I still have yet to live a balanced life, or perhaps I am and do not realize it. :)

Wellness and balance go hand-in-hand I think. Good thinking. Love the stacked rocks. I've been thinking of doing that in my new little garden.
