In science, there is a concept about equilibrium that all the things in this universe chase that balance. Things keep moving in agitated state till they achieve balance. Ever since, I am a firm believer of keeping balance in life (no matter, how much I have been able to keep it up, actually). Sorry to interrupt, but just now I deduced why I could never become a sincere Science student. When from the concepts of science, one is busy deriving out concepts of philosophy, how could that be possible 🙂 ?
Anyways, back to the track again. So what do you people feel? How important is that balance thing? Is it achievable or not? Is it essential or not? No no, don’t worry, I am not going to preach about anything, although I am very good at that 😉 But on a serious note, I just want understand how people keep up balance in their ever complex lives.
The scenario of working couples, with kids and their schools, parents away in home towns, office schedules and commitments, household chores and what not. Those who are engaged/married and studying(higher studies), they know how they deal with their complexities. And what about the parents with their grown up kids living in different cities? A major chunk of their day goes on phone only unless until they travel to see them or vice-versa.
It’s all maddening, it’s all bizarre. It seems everybody is running after letting all the ends meet in place. I wonder people around have either turned into machines or else have tuned their mechanisms so well that nothing upsets. Perhaps here is when priorities come into picture. Perhaps that is how you learn about the imperfect life and understand that while balancing things you can’t expect them to be all perfect.
I hibernated from this blog for a while, reason being re-adjustments in daily schedule. Even today, I am stealing some time away to show up. Complexities will keep on multiplying with time and age, more and more concerns will keep adding on. And to keep up with them all and still being able to enjoy lives, one needs to give up the craving for perfection.
A man would do nothing if he waited until he could do it so well that no one could find fault.
Hence, a bit of fudging is always allowed. After all it is hard to balance…what say???
