After "finding soul balance" for over a year, I've realized that I only feel balanced when I totally depend on God for my life and direction. I can try to orchestrate my life and work and people so that everything fits together perfectly. But I don't know what is around the corner in the next minute. I feel balanced when I open my hands and recognize that only God, who created the world, can bring it back into the balance which he intended from the beginning. I am learning to literally say, "God, what do you want me to do today? And help me to do it."
It is only from this starting point that any of my other balance advice may help.
