It's A Balancing Act
If you lean too far in any direction, you are going to fall. You can only hope there is a net below to catch you. This is what I learned from Unplug Week. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, last week was supposed to be a week for writers to unplug from all social networking and just write. Well, I hated it. But it did teach me that life is all about balance. When we spend too much time on one thing, other areas of our lives suffer. Likewise, if we neglect something we love doing, we suffer. So the key is to find a proper balance on a daily basis, not to abandon something for a week just because it's taking up too much of our time. Now, how do we find that balance? I'm not sure, but I'd love to hear how you all do it. On another note, this is the last week for the Slumpbuster Challenge. Mooch has been itching for his next move. We've got five days to finish his story. What do you say we give it a go? To add the next sentence, click on the penguin in my sidebar.
