Five Days of Comfort: Balance

It's the other balances that capture my attention.

I watch my mom, wondering how long she'll maintain her balance.

I watch my bank account, estimating how much I'll need to remain in balance.

Are these the balances they suggest we maintain? Because sometimes these balances feel out of my control, like they topple the scale flat on its back.

So, I work to balance worry with letting go, anxiety with faith.

Perhaps that's how my scale stays balanced -- with good measures of releasing and believing. They are the hugs I give myself.

When worries pop up, I remind myself of what I have already been through, so surely I can manage whatever lies ahead.
