    Balance is key in everything we do.

    Dancing all night is just as important as yoga in the morning. Relaxing on the couch and listening to the rain is just as important as taking a long walk in the sunshine.

    A good conversation with friends is just as important as sitting peacefully in a quiet room, and a breakfast feast of bacon, eggs, fried potatoes and biscuits and gravy is just as important as a bowl of fresh fruit and oatmeal.

    “When I grow up, my maid will do my cooking!” Yes, that’s what I would proudly and regularly exclaim to my mother when she would ask me to come into the kitchen and cook with her.

    Of course that was just the ranting of an immature teenager with grandiose ideas but very green to reality. Needless to say, I’m almost 35 years old and do not have a maid.
