It's All a Balancing Act

“Say not, ‘I have found the truth’, but rather, ‘I have found a truth.’ (Kahlil Gibran)

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” (Aristotle)

“Memory is the scribe of the soul.” (Aristotle)

As far back as I can remember, I have known that life is a balancing act; that, as an adult, we need to somehow balance our responsibilities in a way that at least demonstrates our willingness to work toward what we consider “wholeness”. And, I would imagine that just about everyone reading this will agree that maintaining balance in our lives sometimes feels nearly impossible. We are made up of body, mind and spirit.

In order to become whole human beings, each of these areas needs nurturing and attention, time and effort. Most of us end up nurturing one or two of these three components to the detriment of the other one or two.
