A pendulum is made up of three primary components, a bob or weight, a string, and an anchor. When the bob of the pendulum is at its peak it is brought back to center by the string that is attached to the anchor. Said differently, the anchor and string stop the bob from flying off in any one direction.
The bob of life is always swinging to extremes. What brings it back to center? Two critical components, the anchor of who you ultimately want to be and the string of streaks that keep you connected to your anchor.
