The Road to Balance

The road to balance is a road without a map. It is a road determined by choices. Our choices in life determine who we are. Luckily, these choices can be changed, our lives, in turn, altered and sometimes even recreated. In order to find some balance in your life, you need to be open to change. For many people, change is not very easy. Some people are afraid of change. It is easy to become accustomed to a routine. Change is a fact of life. Some changes are expected, others unanticipated. Some changes are welcome, others not. And then there are the changes that are embraced, welcomed with open arms when your head and your heart are ready for change. Sometime you might feel that you will never be ready. But try not to let the fear lurking around the edges of your self confidence stall you before you even get out the starting blocks

Take a risk on yourself and you will be the winner no matter what the outcome. You don’t always need to give yourself a specific time table. But check in with yourself periodically to be sure you are on the road that you want to travel. Remember that there will be bumps along the road, detours from your path. This is to be expected. Life lessons will be learned, both good and bad. Listen to their messages. Let yourself be open to all the opportunities that change really can offer you. Heed its infinite power.
