Finding Your Balance In Life

FINDING YOUR BALANCE IN LIFE  / How to Walk the Tight Rope with Grace

To keep a healthy balance between all the important areas of life is like a walk on a tight rope that requires concentration, focus and courage.

I recently had the opportunity to walk on an actual tight rope that two young men had tied up between trees in a neighborhood park on the beach.
