It is easy to become so concerned about one area of life that we are pulled out of balance in others. What pulls us out of balance can be anything, including money, work, health concerns, fitness and even food. None of these things are necessarily bad, but when any one becomes the center of our lives we miss out on the fullness of life we were created to experience.
When we are being called to learn a new way of eating and living it is so easy to become with obsessed with what we are learning or what led us to the path we are on. It’s even possible to get caught up in focusing on sickness. Sometimes we have to pull ourselves out of this and consciously work toward balance again.
Living in balance is not a once and for all kind of thing. Wouldn’t it be nice if it were? We are constantly making adjustments to stay balanced. Think of it as walking a balance beam. We may lose our balance and even fall off the beam from time to time, but it is important to keep trying.
