Finding the Right Balance

Getting ready for the day can be daunting.  Not because it is daunting (I mean, it’s not as if we have to sleep standing up with one eye open scanning for hungry lions!), but because the world imposes so many constraints and there are so many ways to be free that we have to think hard about how far we dare go balancing full expression with necessary conformity.
Suppose for a minute, you’re an earring.  (Work with me, people!)  You want to dangle, you want to jiggle, you want to waggle.  But some people want you to BEHAVE!  You need a WIRE that does it all!   We all want to find the right wire, right?  A wire that will take us places, hold us tight and never let us go, yet is flexible and allows us to be who we are.  We want a wire that is the right measure between industrial and romantic, glam on the dance floor and proper at the office, not too long, not too soft, not too slack, not too… Wait, what are we talking about again?  Oh yes, earring wires. 
Now, since we are artistry in jewels and/or semi-precious metal, we shouldn’t settle for the wrong wire!  It’s not too much to expect, even demand, handsome and hypoallergenic!  And if you find one that compliments YOU perfectly? Jackpot.
