Finding balance is a constant theme of my life – striving for balance in the face of constant change. Life is always in flux: personal needs, family needs, work demands, weather, emotions, hormones, illness, time (to name a few;) and then mix that up with the flux of the energies of the people and critters who cross our paths each day. We are constantly adjusting as we go, affected by paths of others.
I yearn for balance in these waves of flux. Life tends to go more smoothly when we go with the flow or, putting it another way, find our own balance in the flow of living. When we achieve a state of balance we feel peaceful, vibrant and joyful.
Mother Nature truly gives us the best gifts. For balance she gives us celery. Celery has an astonishing ability to balance body fluids and digestive acids. It is hugely anti-inflammatory, cleansing and detoxifying. It is filled with electrolytes to rehydrate. Consuming celery in the concentrated form of fresh juice helps create physical internal harmony. Celery literally gets rid of what we don’t need, replenishes what we need and balances the rest. It is a humble little vegetable patiently waiting for its powers to be tapped into.
Life is a balance of holding on and letting go – Rumi
