The Five Balls

Imagine that life is a game in which you are juggling five balls.

These balls are called work, family, health, friends and integrity.

And you are keeping them all in the air – at the same time!

But one day, you finally come to understand that work is like rubber ball.

If you drop it, it will bounce back.

The other four balls – family, health, friends and integrity – are made of glass.

If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.

Once you truly understand the lesson of the five balls, you will have the beginning of balance in your life…………….

With many peaceful blessings

  1. Not so sure about this. Work is important. And of course so are friend. But I made many friend from all paths of life. Some stayed, some didn’t .
    Some were like rubber balls, which is a good thing. They bounce back even if you temporarily had to juggle the other balls. But as a doctor, if you drop the work, Pryor might die.
