Goal or pleasure? Future or now? Big picture, or daily struggle? Am I balanced between these polarities? No, I'm not. While I want the future, I am purely focused on now, today, small picture and the goal. But the need for an interesting social life versus the need to express myself creatively - ah, yes, they are a bit in opposition. Expressing myself creatively, through baking, knitting, gardening, really does take a lot of time. I'm having a hard time figuring out how to have dinner with some friends. It is a balancing act, and it will take some thought.
