Balance emotions with reason.
Combine detachment with doing our part.
Balance giving with receiving.
Alternate work with play, business with personal activities.
Balance tending to our spiritual needs with tending to our other needs.
Juggle responsibilities to others with responsibilities to ourselves.
Balance caring about others with caring about ourselves.
Whenever possible, let’s be good to others, but be good to ourselves too.
Some of us have to make up for lost time.
Today, I will strive for balance.
From The Language of Letting Go by Melody Beattie
