Like a well-trimmed sailboat, we best balance on the edge between all magic and all mundane.
Seeking to be all magic defeats the purpose of this game we call life. It’s like getting the cheat codes. No challenge. No growth. No fun.
Seeking to be all mundane invites lots of (oh, so much!) struggle.
Blending magic and the mundane helps us play this game in a really fun and light and interesting way.
In your corner,
PS: Balance is not a goal. It is not a noun. When we speak of it here, it’s a verb.
PPS: Kids embody this blend of challenge and magic. Adults can, too.
PPPS: You get to define magic however you want to.
