Learn How to Juggle

    Imagine your life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air. You name them — work, family, health, friends and spirit as you do your best to keep all five balls in the air. You will soon learn 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. How?

      *Don't under estimate your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special.
      *Don't set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you.
      *Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.
      *Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or dreaming of the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live ALL the days of your life.
      *Don't give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
      *Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is this fragile thread that makes us a family.
      *Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only where you've been, but also where you're going.
      *Don't forget that a person's greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated.
      *Don't be afraid to learn. Knowledge is weightless, a treasure you can always carry easily.
      *Don't use words or time carelessly. Neither can be retrieved.
      *Don't get stuck in a rut. Some of the most memorable times in life happen spontaneously.
      "Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all the things will be added to you." (Matthew 6:33)
