Something to Think About - Finding Balance

My kids had a friend over the other day. As I noticed how this child had changed over the years, it got me thinking: Where's the line between apathy and easy-going? When does being responsible and goal-oriented turn into rigidity and having a stick-up-your-butt?

The word Hatha actually means Sun and Moon. Yoga is to yoke or join opposites together. In class we talk about finding balance. Balance in standing postures. Balance of strength and flexibility. Balance between muscular and organic energies.

How about balance in our lives?

Not just in how we live or divide our time, but what about finding a place to be responsible and take action. Yet, also, take an easy-going attitude? If either of these mindsets takes over, we run the risk of falling over the cliff of apathy or rigidity (stick-up-the-butt-ity).

Something to think about....


Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
