BALANCE...

People I met in travel love to discuss about balance and ways to find and to maintain it. Sometimes I think the ‘holy grail’ quest to find this balance could end up being too overwhelming and consuming, both physically and mentally.

So, I would use this analogy to illustrate and drive in my point, “When you send your car to the mechanic for wheel alignment and balancing, after the job is done, when you drive off, you don’t even have to hold the steering wheel and yet the car would still go straight, until you hit your first bump or the second. Then the car would start veering slightly either to the left or right. At this point, all you have to do to keep the car straight is to use your little pinky to, once in a while, nudge the steering”

Life is full of these little manageable nudges.
