That’s why life and work flows easier when we get into balance ourselves; we’re not wasting energy in realignment, we’re free to go with the flow.
Creative balance has two key traits. It is individual. What is perfectly poised for one person is utter boredom for another, crazily driven to a third.
And balance is dynamic. You don’t wake up one day and say: “Ah! Here I am at last, finally balanced!” It is constantly being renegotiated – in each year, in each week, in each hour, in each moment.

Creative balance is always the answer.
