Balance is very important in life.
Physically, you can balance on one foot (it’s a lot harder when you’re standing on a bosu!), perhaps on one hand, or on your head. If you take yoga, you learn a lot about balancing in many different ways. Vertigo makes it very hard to find your balance. I can’t look over a balcony without feeling like I’m going to lose my balance.
Mentally, you can have a balanced work-life situation, or balanced and controlled feelings.
You can balance your budget, balance the scales of justice, find a balance between two opposing points of view (this is sometimes called a compromise, the meaning of which a certain tangerine POTUS doesn’t seem to understand).
You, hopefully, have a bank balance, or hopefully don’t have a balance owing on your Visa.
In music, you need to have the right balance of the orchestra to the soloist, assuming you want to hear the poor flute player.
A balance is a kind of scale, or the regulating thingy in a watch or clock.
And on this blog, I need to provide you with a good balance of kitten photos to counteract all the writing I have done about balance…
