We are an activity-based culture in the United States today. We are busy. Some of us complain about our busyness…some of us wear it as a badge of honor. Regardless, we need help. We need solutions. Try this on…I think it will give you a new vision (literally) for living your life with purpose, not busyness.
Do you know how this woman keeps her balance? She maintains her balance by looking not at her feet, but at the other end of the line!
When I first started driving, I would exhaust myself trying to stay in my lane. I was constantly adjusting the car in relation to the center line. But then my Dad told me to not look at the center line, but far down the road and trust myself to make the adjustments needed. I can still remember the revelation that was to my daughter when she was learning to drive.
It’s the same for us in keeping balance in our lives: when we have our eyes on the end — where we want to arrive — then we begin to automatically make small adjustments all day long to keep on track. Sure, the occasional squirrel will dart into the road and we’ll have to make some sudden course adjustments, but we know where we want to return.
Balance can be a tricky business, but when we’re sure of our center of gravity, and our end goal, then adjustments start to become automatic.
