Living life in a balanced way

Loxdale bridge 2

The present and the future are connected to the past and partly determined by it. If we have prepared for the future, we will have a better future. That might mean guarding against the bad things that might happen in the future by driving carefully, taking precautions and saving for the future. We just have to find a good balance between our present and future needs, so we can enjoy both.

We have to try to live life in a balanced way. They say that all things in  moderation is the best way to go and you can have too much of a good thing. A balanced diet can be essential to good health. You don’t want to be a spendthrift and have no money for emergencies, but no one wants to be a Scrooge either. Many of us are making an effort now we have a new year under-way. Some people are trying to lose the extra pounds that they put on over Christmas and are trying a balanced diet. Other people are regretting Christmas and the new year celebrations and found it a lonely time. It seems many people are trying to improve their love lives and are turning to dating agencies for help. Life is for living, but the key to contentment does seem to be in a balanced approach.

Investments: diversification was yesterday’s post on a Zillion Ideas and that was about balancing your investments for a better future.

Thrifty Thursday: Value for money was  Thursday’s post. You have to be thrifty and careful with your money so you can save a bit and invest for the future.

Neodigital Art: dereliction was about taking photos of derelict sites and making the resulting image art. It’s not often I see a good shot, but I have taken photos of derelict buildings, demolition sites, old railway tracks and industrial scenes and there is a lot more going on in those images that in the pretty landscapes. I hope to record history with some of the images too.

Photography:Trams and trains used my images that I took at the Midland Metro station and the local railway station. You can always get interesting images at stations.

Psychology: conditioning was Monday’s psychology post. Some things are born in us, but most are  the result of psychological conditioning. The conditioning can automate many of the things that we do and make life easier, but conditioning can also be a curse.

Bigoted Britain was my Sunday ramble and the most popular post of the week. My readers agree with me; both of them…

I’ll be back tomorrow with another Sunday ramble about something; I have no idea what. I want to take photos this weekend for the waterways competition. I keep on trying! It’s either cloudy and poor light or a clear sky and so freezing cold that I can’t stop shivering. I’ll also try to cover the latest news in tomorrow’s post. I try to make the political comment on a Sunday amusing, but it doesn’t always work out. It’s usually my best post of the week and so don’t miss that anyway. If you have something to say, please comment. You can also follow me on Twitter and if you would like to have a go at writing, I still need writers for a Zillion Ideas. Send me an email…
