There's no guarantee that everything will turn out exactly

the way you want it to, but there IS a guarantee that it

cannot possibly do so if you are afraid to even take the chance.NDW

I took Friday evening off to chillax. It's been a full on week. I went to
the MOCADA Museum, spent some time with my aunt at the first full solar
powered restaurant in NYC. I also met a friend in Manhattan we had dinner
then walked around like kids gaping at the lights on the sky scrapers and
people watching

Balance - how important is balance and how do you define balance?

I think it is a case of including into the mix activities that inspire you,
activities that bring you joy, activities that connect you with like minded
people, activities that get you still.

That is my definition of balance

And the old saying all work and no play....

that's real

Peace
