Tension is something we have grown to hate because it is usually viewed as a bad thing. But is it really so bad?
Too much surely is – just like the belt on a car engine – if the tension is too high, it keeps the parts from working the way they should and causes them to wear out prematurely. Sounds a lot like many of our daily lives, doesn’t it?
But, think about when there is no tension on that belt – when there is no force holding it into place. Then, it just sits there spinning freely, not doing what it was designed to do. This too sounds a lot like our daily lives, doesn’t it?
Balance – just enough but not too much – seems to be the key.
Can you find it?
