“We can be sure that the greatest hope for maintaining equilibrium in the face of any situation rests within ourselves.”
– Dr. Francis J. Braceland
I truly believe that we are capable of achieving almost anything we set our minds to. Nearly everything we need in order to ensure our success, lies within us. It is largely a matter of believing in oneself and maintaining self-discipline. I find that we often do battle with ourselves over giving time and attention to life’s obligations versus spending time doing the things we enjoy. This piece was inspired by the human struggle to maintain a healthy balance between work and play in our everyday lives. The hat represents the responsibilities and obligations we carry everyday. The figure’s gesture serves to indicate the desired balance between fulfilling obligations and taking time for joyful activities. Maintaining this personal equilibrium is a key factor in ensuring our happiness, good health and success.
