Imagine life as a game
in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name
them work, family, health, friends and spirit, and you're
keeping all of these 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 & 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

that and strive for balance in your life. How?
Don't undermine 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

Don't 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.
Don't give up when you
still have something to give. Nothing is really over until
the moment you stop trying.
