Maryland Blogger: Seeking balance in our lives

Seeking balance in our lives

Seeking balance in our lives


“Life moves by SWIFTLY. It is not meant for you to be looking at a glowing screen all the time. Think about that!” – Gary Woltal

Flower Mound, Texas real estate professional Gary Woltal reminds us that we should seek balance in our lives. Too many real estate professionals focus their entire lives on business activities and end up missing the better options in life. Gary recommends that we spend less time on documenting our lives and more time on living our lives.

One of the activities that helps me maintain balance is photography. Those that follow my blogs know that I enjoy photographing flowers. This interest demands quality time in our home neighborhood or in our travels to visit beautiful gardens. It is easy to set aside the problems of the day when you focus your attention and your camera on a beautiful flower.

As we begin the autumn season, it is a good time for personal commitments to spend more time with those that we love and adding quality of life activities to our personal goals.

In our younger days we just seek to survive for the most part.  And now I have the balance it is just to try and keep it.
