The importance of imbalance

It is an idea that is easy to forget when you work hard on happiness. We like both routine and variety and it is, thus, important to let ourselves go and become a bit less obsessed with keeping things exactly as we like them.

So, every once in a while, say yes to more than you can do, take on more than you can normally do, let loose and stay up the whole night and let it mess up your routines.

Often, that’s when magic happens.

Yes, we lose balance. But, life is about the balancing, not just about being balanced. Sometimes.. just sometimes, it is worth giving our lives a slight tremor ourselves to keep us alert, active, and prepared for life’s big (and unusually unexpected) tremors.
