On Life Balance...

Isn't the gorgeous grove of trees featured in these photos magical?  There's something else I adore about these pics, though...  It's the lovely interplay of sun and shadows--gently gracing an early evening in the springtime.

I've often said some of life's best lessons are brought about by nature's glory.  That evening's simple interplay of light and shadows reminds me of the necessity for balance--in all things.

Over time, I've found I can balance even the busiest of days in the office.  Some of my favorite ways to do so are to simply step outside for a few minutes to savor a bed of tulips in bloom, walk across the hall to brew a cup of herbal tea, and to gift myself a quick, solo lunch date to grab a chocolate-banana soy smoothie.

Journaling from home, before my busy work day begins, is a luscious way to ensure myself balance.  And, post-work yoga classes and walks outdoors after dinner--those work well, too!
