Do you pursue everything in your life with passion and enthusiasm? If so do you ensure that you stop yourself from overdoing it? Too much focus in one area distracts you from other areas. You should always strive to maintain a healthy balance so that you can fulfil your desires in every aspect of your life.
Moderation in All Things
Do you recognise that keeping everything in moderation brings good consequences and that you can control your actions so that you can enjoy these positive results every day.
Take eating, for example. We all love our food and many people enjoy trying new foods and savoring there unique flavours. However we also know that if we overeat, it interferes with our desire to have for a healthy, fit body. So if you eat in moderation you can gain fulfilment in both areas.
Your passion for work may bring you many rewards. But you also need to recognise that the ability to leave work behind at the end of each workday lets you pursue the other passions in your life: hobbies, family, and leisure activities. So work in moderation to allow time for all.
It is a thoroughly enjoyable experience to spend time with the love of your life! When you say ‘see you soon’ consider that you are building anticipation towards the next time you see each other. Moderation keeps excitement in relationships making your time together even more fulfilling.
The time you spend with your children should be special and not rushed, they grow up to quickly. However, give them the freedom and support to pursue their own goals with focus and passion, knowing that fulfilment in the areas of importance to them, makes your time together a whole lot more fun.
Today, plan to schedule time for work, family, and leisure activities, giving equal importance to each. This way you can thoroughly enjoy yourself and end the day with a great feeling of accomplishment and fulfilment.
