Moderation


Should everything be done in moderation?

In general, most things should be done in moderation. Most times, things should be done in moderation but there are exceptions. Sometimes there are exceptions, such as playing an instrument when one must pour one’s heart and soul into the experiences and not do it with moderation. There are some experiences where one must do an all or nothing experience. Music is one of those. Sports is another. Teaching is another. But in everyday life, most of our everyday experiences are done in moderation. Extremism is not desirable. But it takes wisdom to know when moderation is needed and when extremism is appropriate.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

    There’s no need to hold back on expressing love, either!
