What does well-being mean to me?

"To me, well-being means balance and acceptance. To be able to devote resources (energy, thought, time, effort) to things that are meaningful and feed one's internal fire. When things get out of balance, giving oneself permission to re-evaluate and make changes, accepting that the only forces we can control are the ones within us including the good, bad and ugly."
