[S]eeking balance—giving adequate time and effort to each of those things that really matter—is vital to our success in mortal probation.
Each of us has the ability to receive the direction we need to achieve a balanced life. My hope and prayer is that we will do what we need to do to have the influence of our Father in Heaven in our lives.
We know that we don’t have control over all the situations that come into our lives each day. But, then again, it’s not so much what comes into our lives as it is how we respond to it.
With balance comes happiness and inner peace. How unfortunate it is that some work a lifetime on a goal like making money or attaining social status, only to find that these things do not bring real happiness.
For you to see the Lord's plan for your life, you will need to prepare today to develop tomorrow's necessary social, practical, and spiritual skills.
Don't become so engrossed in one issue or area of your life that you can't have balance. Be well-rounded, excel, and have a sense of humor.
