I need to eat a fairly balanced diet. My idea of fairly balanced means that twice a day (usually, sometimes only one meal is enough) I will eat some protein and I will eat vegetables and a couple of times a week I will eat some fruit. I have milk nearly everyday and cheese, oh yes, cheese every single day. I must have my 'goodie' every other day, at the very least. Okay, so balanced. when associated with diet, for me means I will control my portion sizes, I will never control my actual food choices. I will eat what I am hungry for and not over eat hardly ever.
My marriage is also a balancing act. I cannot keep my mouth shut all the time, so I settle for not saying something EVERY time I really want to correct him or
The one place I do not have balance is in my love of writing. If I start a book, I will obsess until it is completed. I sometimes stay up all night and take a nap and then go right back to the story. I basically do nothing else until it is done. I will write and rewrite until it is in the roughest form finished. I will work it over until I am happy with it, set it aside and like most, go back to it in a couple of weeks and rework it again. Then I like to give it to my sister for editing. Then rework again. I cannot leave a book unfinished. I want to sometimes. I want to start something else, sometimes; but I cannot.
All things considered, I think my life is pretty much centered. The good and the not so good are in balance. The people around me are so varied that I am never bored with their company. My kids are all grown and living their own lives which all include me to some degree. (Some more than others) My grandbabies are all healthy and happy and I LOVE spending time with each of them.
I think I am just plain happy.
Yep, I am.
