Quote – Balance – Week #22

But you do have choices about how you spend your time. Balancing what you need to do with what you want to do can lead to happiness and success.

Written for Marsha’s Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays Writing Challenge #22: Balance

The feature image is the balance between nature and creativity. It is a Zen Garden that Frank made that is interactive for anyone who wants to take it apart and put it together through their own meditation. Your mood can dictate the design by bringing the mind, body and soul together allowing you to relax and create something from material that came from our natural surroundings.

The Balance

Being outside in nature is our place of europhia. The photos above demonstrate the need to keep your life in balance. The photo on the left is where I’d really like to be right now. The photo on the right is my reality…writing about being at the beach rather than experiencing it. One can’t exist without the other.
