Everything in Moderation

Hello everyone and hope your Monday is off to a fine start. It's going to be a hot week of temps for Atlanta, but I think we're getting used to it...well maybe. One of my Twitter followers tweeted this yesterday ->do everything in moderation, even moderation. I thought it was clever and retweeted it. It made me think about all the different things that are a part our daily lives. We may deny ourselves a favorite food because it's not part of the diet craze we might be trying out. A former boss replied with the same type of response as the tweet when I asked him one day about only drinking one cup of coffee while the rest of us clearly were having 2-3 cups. He simply responded that he believed everything in moderation. We have so much happening in our lives including work, family, outings, and more that it's hard to moderate it all to help avoid becoming overwhelmed. Just like trying to set up a budget plan. It can be done in moderation by deciding on a savings amount that fits comfortably with your income. You don't have to feel guilty by not being able to save a HUGE amount each month. Just the fact that you are saving is most important and doing so in moderation is key.
