Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance and order and rhythm and harmony. – Thomas Merton
One of my internal struggles is balance. I struggle to balance a passion for growth with a desire of peace. I struggle to balance embracing the journey with smelling the roses. I struggle with enjoying today’s success and embracing tomorrow’s challenge.
When I find happiness it is when I have balance . . . when the rhythm of work and play, when the harmony of family and work, and when the order of faith and drive find equilibrium. It’s not the size of victory and the volume of learning; it’s the wisdom to keep perspective.
When and where do you find happiness? Be intentional in your action and purposeful with your time. When with family and friends, be with family and friends. Protect the balance, order, rhythm and harmony in your life.
