Balance is the key in everything you do. Dance all night long and practice yoga the next day. Drink wine but don’t forget your green juice. Eat chocolate when your heart wants it and kale salad when your body needs it. Live high and low. Move and stay still. Embrace all sides of who you are.
Be brave, bold, spontaneous and loud and let that complement your abilities to find silence, patience, modesty and peace. Aim for balance. Make your own rules and follow your own path and don’t let anybody tell you how to live according to theirs.
If you go to the gym and you work out, come back and you look in the mirror; you will see nothing. If you go to the gym the next day and you come back and look at the mirror; you will see nothing. You think, so clearly there’s no results. It can’t be measured. It must not be effective, so we quit.
Or if you fundamentally believe, this is the right course of action to stick, to make yourself to that act of service. You can make yourself to the regime of exercise. You can’t screw it up if you eat chocolate cake one day. You can skip a day or two. But if you stick with it consistently, not exactly sure what day, but I know you’ll start getting into shape. Going to the gym for nine hours a day doesn’t get you into shape. Working out every day for 30 minutes gets you into shape. It’s not about the events. It’s not about intensity. It’s about CONSISTENCY.
You resort to passive-aggressive tactics. For example, you notice some friends who are not with you.
• You are offended and invite another friend to go out with you. • You take a ton of pictures and post them on social media for all to see. • When you feel like you’re losing control of a situation, you create another one that you can control.
Consider picking up a new hobby. Accept that not everything other people do is related to you.
2. You’re kind of a know-it-all.
• You have the feeling that people should listen to you since you’re the one who knows the most. • People around you may feel as though they are suffocating due to your actions. • You may have a persistent desire to put yourself first, which may cause others to perceive you as selfish.
3. You pour attention on someone, then withdraw it if they do something wrong.
• You avoid people after an argument to prove a point. • The point is that you don’t need them, and if they want to make up, they should go to you first. • You feel the need to be in control. • It’s important to remember that no one is perfect, including you.
4. You are adamant about getting your way.
• You are being persuasive. • In some cases, you may have to go to great lengths to obtain your desired outcome. • Assume you want candy for everyone, but others wish to have chocolate. So, what do you do? You get rid of all the chocolate, so they don’t have a choice. • If you ever catch yourself doing these things, stop, take a deep breath, and take a step back.
BALANCE is the key in everything you do. Dance all night long and workout next day. Or practice yoga the next day. Drink wine but don’t forget your green juice. Eat chocolate when your heart wants it and kale salad when your body needs it. Wear new kicks on saturday and walk barefoot on sunday. Live high and low. Move and stay still. Embrace all sides of who you are. Be brave, bold, spontaneous and loud and let that complement your abilities to find silence, patience, modesty and peace.
Aim for BALANCE. Remain consistent in your walk of life. Make your own rules, follow your own path and don’t let anybody tell you or influence you how to live according to theirs. (Not my words).
