“Everything in moderation” is a bit overstated no doubt. Maybe another way of saying it is, “Finding balance in our life.”
Most likely someone will say that you can have balance in your life if you just want to be mediocre in everything. Maybe. Maybe not.
Are we successful in life if we have an extremely profitable business making a six figure income but no private life, deep relationships or anyone to share it with because we work 12 hour days? Can we be happy if we’re not able to focus enough time on our health (mentally and physically) and taking care of our needs due to dysfunctional relationships all around us?
Life is a delicate balance. It takes a self-awareness to maintain the areas of our lives that need attention, repair and love. In the end, we are more likely to be happy when many facets of our lives are working – not just one.
