I often wonder, What really am I balancing?

Am I balancing who to make unhappy?

Am I balancing who to disappoint?

Am I balancing which life goal to skip?

Am I balancing which activity or hobby to let go even when I've let so many already go?

These questions show me a scale I will never balance. When it's an either/or, I'm destined to drop.

So, I think I will balance my desire to be my best with what I need to be my  best. I'm going to add "and" to my balance. I can keep what keeps me at my best and provide the best care possible to my parents.

When I stay balanced, my scale stays even.
