Finding Balance


How many phrases can capture my predicament:

  • Can't teach an old dog new tricks.
  • Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. 
  • Repetition does not transform a lie into a truth.
  • Sometimes in life, your situation will keep repeating itself until you learn your lesson.

My chink in my armour is most definitely my inability to say no. I also have a challenge not doing something all the time. I have a hard time sitting down and just doing nothing. But mostly, I have a challenge saying no to people, to adventure, to doing stuff.

And I guess I have a hard time not organizing groups of people to get together.  No matter how awesome the adventure that can be created.

But all this comes at a price. And last week the price was a fever. 

And when I get a fever it means I have to go in to the emergency ward and get checked for an infection as there is a fear that with my compromised immune system I am susceptible to stuff.

Fortunately I got over it, but the question remains. How do I keep moving, how do I keep earning an income, how do I keep gathering people and how do I keep collecting memories... while not over doing it all?

A good question. 

I'm on it, but I have a feeling I have been tackling this question for many many years. 

And the question remains. How do I create that delicate balance between doing and just being?

Always look on the bright side of life
