life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air.
You name them Work, Family, Health, Friends and Spirit, and you
are keeping all of them in the air. You will soon understand
that Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce
back. But the other four balls--Family, Health, Friends and
Spirit--are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they
will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even
shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that
and strive for balance in your life.
undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is
because we are different that each of us is special.
set your goals by what others deem important. Only you know what
is best for you.
take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them
as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.
let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or
for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live
all the days of your life.
give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really
over until the moment you stop trying.
