I’ve known about blog carnivals for a while, but never participated or organized one. A few weeks ago, I decided to create one, so that I could pass on some interesting articles to you. As the carnival goes on (I plan to post twice a month), you might occasionally see a post that covers something I’ve already written about. I think that’s great! Everyone has a different perspective on things, and if one of these articles or posts as an impact on your or inspires you to make a positive change in your life, then it has served its purpose.

I’m pleased with this first edition of the Balanced Living Carnival. I received more submissions than I anticipated – and I didn’t publicize the carnival in any way! Enjoy!
