Greetings from the Editor:
Start with Balance
Imagine your best day ever. You wake up before the alarm goes off and just lie there quietly, remembering all the good things you can do to boost your attitude and insure you will get the most out the day. You begin with gratitude for this life and the opportunity to learn and grow and play another day. Then you set an intention for the day – to stay calm and peaceful no matter what unexpected comes your way, or to communicate with kindness and compassion, or to make eye contact and smile at 20 people during the day, or to take good care of yourself today. As you lie there, you review the day ahead noting where some of the challenges might be and how you can best prepare yourself. People you know who are in pain and who have challenging situations come to mind now and you send them prayers and healing thoughts. To all others, as well as yourself, you send blessings for Divine Grace. Now you pop out of bed ready for a brand new day and prepared to meet challenges and enjoy the highpoints of the day.
What happens when we are hurried and stressed about our day and do not take the time to be grateful, set intentions, and think of others? Right, the opposite of balance. May we all remember to take the time each morning to prepare ourselves to live our day with ease and balance.

There is a way out of being continually disappointed with your life.
