Finding Balance

Balance is critical to a successful life. Like a tightrope walker in a circus working without a net, perfect balance keeps us moving forward rather than falling.

Unfortunately, our nation is out of balance today and the results are going to be catastrophic. Too many have chosen an extreme side of every issue. And rather that seeking solutions or viewing options, we deal in absolutes. We live in a world where there is no longer any discussion in the grey areas of life.  You are either for the topic or against it. You are either fighting or defending. And in the process, we are falling into the abyss.

When did this start happening? At what point did we decide it was better to fall to our death than find a middle ground? When did our outspoken and over-stated points of contention replace civil debate and resolution?

If we aren’t careful, our lack of balance will take us beyond the point of no return.
