Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them – work, family, health, friends, time – 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 Time – 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.
I got an email with this story late last night. I relate to it quite a bit.
