thought for today

The art of avoiding extremes is an art that is drawn on the canvas of maturity and painted with the abstract strokes of many experiences.

T.D. Jakes, from his book The Lady, Her Lover and Her Lord

I love T.D. Jakes' words pictures... he always gets his point across in a very vivid way for me!  The context of the quote is about learning the balance between selfishness and self denial.  Each day we are faced with choices.  T.D. 's words remind me that learning to set healthy boundaries and avoiding extremes is part of maturing as a woman and as a human being.
