Assuming we haven’t had too many beers, balance is something we take for granted. Like our beating heart, blinking eyes, and breathing.
And we don’t miss balance until it’s gone.
Stand on one leg. No fair holding on to anything! A little tricky, but manageable.
Now close your eyes.
In a few short seconds, you’re teetering. No matter how hard you try to keep your body still. Even if you tried, like I did, to focus on something before shutting my eyes to keep myself steady. No luck.
If we forget our focus and go to dark places, it’s a short time before we lose our balance. Both literally and figuratively.
