Life is like riding a bicycle.
To keep your balance, you must keep moving.
This quote focuses on my motto for 2018. Instead of setting a new years resolution. I decided to just have a focus for the year.
At least, a focus is easier to claim victory on than a specific resolution, which I would forget in a month or two.
What attracted me to this quote was not that it is about balance. What attracted me was it equates balance with movement. In order to keep life from becoming stagnate, we need to continue to move forward. Forward in our goals, our dreams, our relationships, our careers, and even our health.
Ideas of balance and movement go together perfectly. They remind me that I can be stuck in trying to fix one aspect of my life and throw everything else out of balance. I must be able to move through the aspects of my life giving each the attention required, not too much and not too little.
