Take a moment and think

When was the last time you just let go?

Didn’t run

Didn’t push

Didn’t worry, worry, worry

Just ran about

Laughed out loud

Swung your arms like a child?

There are times when you need to be serious

Keep control of your thoughts and emotions

There are times when you need the opposite

Speak what’s on your mind

Let your heart run wild

Both sides need their turn and time.

There’s no point in being grown up if you can’t be childish sometimes.

Floating in Water

Balance is more than being able to keep up with what your life is throwing at you.

It’s about being able to do what you feel is right.

It’s about wanting to do what you feel is right.

It’s about finding out who you are.

It’s about deciding what is important.

It’s about acting on those decisions.

It’s about being aware that everything can change in an instant.

Balance is hard to fight for, even if you are living alone, because you are never truly alone.

You will have met people throughout your life and parts of them, their ideas, will always be with you.

You will have read things that stay with you.

You will have seen things that are etched imperfectly into your mind.

You will hear things that warp in your mind, but retain some semblance of what was spoken.

You will learn things that are changeable yet solid in your mind.

You will change your mind and then change it back again.

Balance can never truly be achieved.

If it is, it’s because for one second everything was still, because you are existing in only that moment.
