Life is a Balancing Act

Balancing Act

Post Written By Eugene Morgan

From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life. — Arthur Ashe

The old saying, it is better to give than to get. When we give, our focus is on the other person not on ourselves. When we give expecting nothing in return from another, is priceless. Yes, we do have to give to ourselves as well and allow others to give to us so that we are able to give to another. Everything in the universe is not wasted, and everything is reused, and that’s what makes a life. We give our time; we give a listening ear to another who needs it. And sooner or later, we need someone’s time and a listener to hear us out.  Life is like a mechanism; there is always a balancing act. Too much of giving or getting is not a good thing. We need a balance of both just to keep centered.
