The best and safest thing is to keep balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around and in us.  If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man.  – Euripides

Keeping balance isn’t a new challenge – even the ancient Greeks recognized the need, and struggle, to keep balance in life.  Being balanced requires us to focus on others as well as ourselves.  Being balanced demands us to acknowledge a higher purpose; it necessitates commitment to others.

We are wise when we find joy and fulfillment in a balanced life.  When we are intentional and purposeful in our actions, when we are disciplined in our actions, we are most able to keep this balance.  When we act on impulse, when we put ourselves and immediate needs ahead of others, we get out of balance.  Own your 20 square feet, don’t permit others to place you in an unbalanced situation.  You are in control of you . . . be the best version of you every day.
