Finding Balance by Kristin

It this modern world, it sometimes seems hard to find balance in life.

What’s a girl to do? Audrey Hepburn

We all want to create lives that are fulfilling and rewarding without compromising who we are “au fond,” as the French say. In the depths of ourselves, in our hearts, we want to make a difference, and infuse our time on earth with meaning. I recently read an article called Free Your (Eco) Mind in Yes! Magazine by Frances Moore Lappé, author of the seminal Diet for a Small Planet. frances moore lappeShe still spends a lot of time thinking and writing about how to change the planet and make things better one person at a time. And although she was for a time a glamorous movie star, Audrey Hepburn spent the later years of her life doing charitable work. While many of us may never be famous, or make a huge impact in the world, each of us can do our very best to adhere to the principles we believe in and make a difference in our own smaller ways. One of the things that’s rewarding about working at Living Light is that our students come here to our school, and every one of them goes back out in the world and helps to create a better planet – whether they open a restaurant serving healthy food, write a recipe book, help in a senior center, or simply follow a raw vegan lifestyle, reducing their carbon footprint.balance heart How do you find balance in your life?
