Consider the sound engineer of a
rock n' roll band.
His job is to make the band sound great. He carries around an iPad and listens. If something in the music is out of balance, he adjusts the switches on his app.
In this crazy rock n' roll world we call Life, we can sometimes get out of balance. Just like a band needs a sound engineer to keep us them sounding great, we need someone to keep our life in balance.
We can't do it ourselves, either. Think what would happen if the lead guitarist doubled as the sound engineer. He's just too close to the music to make informed decisions about keeping the entire band in balance.
I'm not going to take this parable much further, because I think the implications are clear. Find your Sound Engineer and even when you're playing too loud or too soft, your life will always be in balance.
I write about, with, for, and around kids all day. (Well, maybe I do the dishes too. Sometimes.)
