    One day a young girl went out to dinner with her parents. As usual she ordered herfavorite Spaghetti and waited eagerly for it. Her dad ordered few other dishes which included Tofu and Cashew Fried Rice. The young girl hated this dish which her dad ordered. But her dad would always ask her to have it. The young girl watched as her dad completed placing the order. Now she knew her dad would again ask her to have the Tofu and Cashew Fried Rice.
    She contemplated in her mind that this time she will gobble up the fried rice without making much fuss before she touches her all time favorite spaghetti. She wanted to enjoy every bit of spaghetti and didn’t want to get back home with the bad taste of fried rice in her mouth. As her mind was engrossed in these thoughts, dishes arrived at the table.

    Her dad quickly asked her, “Dear which dish would you like to taste first? The one you Love or the one you hate?” Without taking a moment’s time, she answered, “I will eat the dish which I hate first. I can complete it and enjoy my favorite dish for a long time later”.
    Then her dad explained to her something which made a significant difference to her way of thinking. After a long time later now, she fondly remembers this incident which can be called as, "Balanced life theory".

    Her dad said, “See dear, if you eat what you like first, there are chances that you may be full before you even start eating your favorite dish, or the chances are that you are not there to enjoy your dish at all.
    At the same time, if you first eat what you love the most, there are chances that you end up eating it all up and you might not have anything left for the future. Later you may end up eating what you hate for the rest of your life. So you should always strike a balance. The balance between what you like and what you do not. Balance between good and bad”.
    This applies to everything in life. Life’s dish has its share of good and bad, the taste which you like and the taste which you hate. You should know how to balance it. Or you may end up blaming LIFE for having tasted BAD always.
