Balancing Act

Today I am grateful for my recovery friends and the honest sharing they do. I am also grateful for the energy in a school staff when they regroup for a new year.

Chobani yogurt recently came through with another message for me:


Here. Now. That is really the most stable place when considering mental health. Being balanced means spending more time in the present and less in the past and future.

"Balance Starts Here" also tells me it is up to me, not the universe, if I am balanced or not. The universe plays a role of course, but one that is beyond my control. My attitude and actions are within my control. 

The balancing act of life starts here, with me.
