Balance reminds me of those who are balancing their lives on the decisions we make, especially those with a physical or financial risk, akin to balancing upside down on a beachball.  Of great importance are the building blocks on which we stack our decisions.  Lacking them and all fall down, especially when we are focused upside down rather than right side up.
