Water runs across the earth. The ground reaches into the sky. Colors blend and burst forth into life. Elements work together to give and sustain life. Picture perfect in my opinion. But who am I to set the standards?
Sometimes life seems picture perfect.
Maybe the perception depends whether we are on the outside looking in or on the inside looking out.
But who painted the picture? Is it our dream or someone else’s dream?
What is ideal anyway? Does it depend on how you were raised? Where you grew up? Where you currently live? Your religion? Your finances? Your occupation? How you dress? Your moral ethics?
Who sets the goals of achievement? Each of our ideas of success vary.
Who determines what constitutes balance in a life? We each need different things to ground us and to motivate us.
Does picture perfect equal being healthy, happy, and at peace?
Do you let others set the criteria for your life or do you set your own?
Are your expectations reasonable and attainable?
How do you define success?
Have you achieved balance in your life?
