I’ve come to learn that our world isn’t so black and white. It shouldn’t have to be all or nothing in every circumstance. Sometimes the answers we seek go beyond option A and option B. We need to find for ourselves a middle ground. A way to consider the needs of others and ourselves.
Life isn’t about all or nothing. Life is built on both patience & action, consistency & adaptability, life & death. These concepts of life don’t simply go beyond the mundane of our day to day. Balance needs to exist in all things. Sleep, work, play, it all needs to fit in the only 24 hours we have each day. Let gratitude help get you there. One day at a time.
