YIN & YANG

When people see things as beautiful,ugliness is created.
When people see things as good,
evil is created.
Being and non-being produce each other.
Difficult and easy complement each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low oppose each other.
Fore and aft follow each other.

I have been waiting for this moment for quite a while. I must admit it has been quite nerve wrecking to say the least. But this being my first post is a big milestone and I am glad you are here to share this experience with me.

Yin and yang? Simply put its balance. You can understand more here . In life everything needs balance from our diets to work schedules to even how we dress. Being balanced makes us feel whole. I chose this to be my first post because I know we all strive to strike a balance in our lives, we want things to be as “perfect” as possible and at times it is a struggle. At times we see the dark (yin) as something negative but without dark we cannot appreciate light (yang). But we must shape our thinking to see that with beauty comes ugliness, with good comes evil. You cannot have the best of both worlds and we should start appreciating our flaws just as much as we pride ourselves in our strengths. One cannot exist without the other. I really struggled with my yin (dark) before I actually got the courage to start this blog. Balance in life is not static but ever changing and that’s okay. Never bash yourself so hard when you fall out of it but look for the yang (light) in it. But remember balance, too much of one thing even good, doesn’t mean it’s the best.

Keep Smiling :-)
