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, 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 some balls will be irrevocably changed while others will bounce back, and strive for balance in your life.
