What’s the big deal about balance?
It seems to me that nearly everybody wants it, but, does balance = happiness?
Does it = success? Power, wealth, physical/mental health?
Balance your life, balanced your cheque book; there is always a new trend, gadget or ‘in thing to do’. Like raising chinchillas or learning to use a hoola-hoop (for those who remember the 50’s.
Or is balance just a ‘thing’, trendy for the moment like aerobics was before Zumba, like tennis before cycling, like Palm Pilots before anyone had Blackberry?
Why is nobody championing imbalance?
Or, what about NO balance at all – how about stretched in every direction but with laser-like focus on what matters most, what about exhaustion – physical and emotional, but the good kind?
Who needs balance?
Who wants balance?
Balance – why would you want that?
