We all know there are things that we must balance in our lives. The first thing that comes to my mind is the checkbook. My OCD has me balancing the checkbook every single month when the statement arrives. I know that some of you are saying, “Geez, lady, get with the times and do it electronically.”
Well, I’m old-school enough that I do it the old way as well as the new way. I still write checks and still like having that paper trail to fall back on. In my generation, in my circle of friends and co-workers, it’s called CYA. And if you don’t know what that is, you’ve got a problem.
Other things we have to balance in our lives is our schedule, our loves, our emotions, our family commitments, our social lives, even our body when we’ve had too much to drink. I have fallen several times in my life (never from drink though…honest!), but I like to think that I’ve managed to keep myself generally well-balanced over the years.
It all started when I was very young, and Dad started teaching me to stay balanced. This is my first lesson. He was a good teacher.
He taught my younger siblings and even his grandchildren, starting here with his first grandson.
