We each have a center point.
That middle ground were everything feels right.
Yet for each of us it is different.
Whether it is the center point of our life, our environment, or our relationships.
FOR SOME OF US, OUR CENTER IS ALWAYS BEING WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
And for others, the center is having time to be alone.
Yet for many people, their center is somewhere in between those two points.
The same is true for our home.
Some of us like to live in the middle of a big city.
For others, that is too much energy, and they need to be in a rural area, far away from people.
AND THEN THERE ARE THOSE OF US WHO WANT TO BE IN NATURE, NOT SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE, BUT WITH OTHERS CLOSE BY.
For some of us, our center is all around our work or our business.
We put everything into creating something through our labor.
Yet for others, we pour everything in our relationships and our families.
AND THEN THERE ARE THOSE WHO FIND A BEAUTIFUL BALANCE BETWEEN WORK AND THEIR PERSONAL LIFE.
For every aspect of our lives, there is a continuum that flows from extreme to its opposite.
That in-between landscape cover quite a bit of terrain.
It can be easy to get caught in the mindset that a certain aspect of our lives has to be one extreme or another.
That kind of immature thinking does not serve us very well.
AS WE GROW AND LEARN FROM OUR EXPERIENCES IN LIFE, WE DISCOVER THAT STICKING TO ONE END OF THE SPECTRUM OR ANOTHER IS NOT FRUITFUL.
Indeed, there is so much complexity to life and so much opportunity to find the point that serves us the best, it is hard to be so extreme once we re aware of all the possibilities.
Possibilities that abound.
And exist in every aspect of life.
TO FORCE ONESELF OR ANOTHER TO PICK ONE EXTREME OR ANOTHER IS A SIGN OF IMMATURE THINKING.
So let us find a way to make room for all the colors of the rainbow.
And allow for each person to find their own center.
Even if it is not the center we would choose.
FOR THERE ARE AS MANY CHOICES IN LIFE AS THERE ARE STARS IN THE SKY.
So can you see where your thinking is extreme?
Can you find a way to allow more center points into your life?
