What is moderation? Calmness of mind; equanimity; as, to bear adversity with moderation. It is also imposing due restraint as in eating with moderation.

The heart is great which shows moderation in the midst of prosperity.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Throw moderation to the winds, and the greatest pleasures bring the greatest pains.

(from: Brainy Quote)

I feel moderation is holding back after I know I have had enough or have done enough. It is also living within your means. It is NOT doing things in excess or extremely. It is being grateful, feeling blessed and at peace with what you have or can afford. Living in moderation is really a satisfying place. It brings bliss.  I invite you to ponder about moderation. What role can moderation have in your life?
