A Meditation on Life: Moderation

Taking time to enjoy life is not a sin.

Enjoyment, done right, is a form of appreciation…

… of the beauties and delights the universe has to offer.

Enjoyment, done right, is part of the natural rhythm of life… a time to relax, regenerate, reflect, and reevaluate in preparation for meaningful work.

Thus, enjoyment, done right, is a form of loving myself…

… but my pleasures and diversions must have a conscience…

… savored without gluttony…

… enjoyed only in proportion to my deserts…

… never devolving to escapes from responsibility…

… and never indulged at the expense of others.
