I saw this statue at Grounds for Sculpture and feel i love with it. How beautifully it portrays the elegance and grace of the dancer. I was also struck by the sense of balance.
As I grow older, my sense of balance is way off, both physically and emotionally. My trainer is constantly working with me to improve my balance. SOme days I can be walking on a flat surface and still suddenly feel off balance. At times, I even stumble or swerve. I do not like the feeling.
I am careful on stairs, and when getting up from a chair or the bed in the morning. There are times I feel so clumsy.
I also find that emotionally I feel off balance. I question whether I have any real friends, whether my family really cares for me. I know it is an inner issue with me and I talk with my counsellor about these feelings. SHe helps me work on myself to maintain balance.
I am somewhat of an introvert, so I must find the right balance of being alone and being with people.
I can also apply this to my weight loss journey. I need to find balance. The right balance of carbs, fats, sugar, salt, and protein. The right balance of exercise and food. The right balance of sleep. I must balance my time to make sure I get in some ME time.
As I go through each day, I am seeking to find balance in all areas of my life. I know I am not there yet, but as long as I am aware, and taking steps to get there, I am ok with that.
I hope you all have a beautiful day.
