I live in awe of surfers and people who have perfect balance ~ like surfers, tightrope walkers, ice-skaters, jockeys and gymnasts to mention but a few. Physical balance is not my forte, especially since breaking my leg a few times in silly accidents that involved not looking where I was going! However, there’s also the matter of mental balance and equilibrium. This is something that everyone finds challenging because of the tossings of life. Looking at the photo of the surfer which has a place on my desktop, I feel that mental balance is also about working towards achieving confidence, working like hell at times in the margins when no one is looking. It is also about knowing how to celebrate even the tiniest achievements and taking apparent failures and rejections on the chin. Yes, learn from rejection but never succumb to it. And most of all, be gracious and thankful; give and receive with heart. Therein lies the grace of mental balance in its purity and freshness. I’d love to hear what you feel about mental balance. What exactly does it involve? How important is it?
