"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving."
I confess. I never did learn how to ride a bike. But,I do know a little something about balance. It keeps you fresh and inspired.
After a long day at Fly Me To The Moon Florists, I used to go home and collapse on my bed.Then I'd get up the next day and start all over again.
But then something interesting happened. I began forcing myself to accept invitations to have dinner with friends or go to a movie after a long day at the shop. I figured I'd be dead tired the next day, but at least I'd have some fun.
I actually got more energized by doing stuff after a long day.That crazy talk about keeping balance in your life began to make sense.
So now, whenever I get a chance, I dance like nobody is watching. Sing at the top of my lungs, though that's clearly not my gift. Go idea shopping in New York City. And I create.
Not just flower arrangements though.
I make personalized cards and gifts for family and friends the way I used to.
Decorate paper with paint, stamps and glitter. I make small collages for the journals I embellish. And big ones for my home.
I hang out with my fabulous husband who loves to laugh. And I pray.
Now if I would just start exercising again...
What do you do to keep a healthy balance of activities in your life?
