“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling 5 balls
in the air… work, family, health, friends and spirit. …
work is a rubber ball. … But the other four balls …
are made of glass. …”
~ Bryan Dyson
Stop for a moment and think.
What aspect of your life are you giving highest importance to right now – work, family, health, friends, or spirit?
How does that hinder or help your overall “life balance”?
Are you taking care of yourself first?
Are you letting “work” or a growing “to do” list get in the way of living a health, fulfilled, and satisfying life?
If not, what needs to change to make that happen?

is not a place at which one arrives,
but rather the spirit
with which one undertakes and continues the journey.”

What do you want to accomplish this year?

Write a good one.”

“I know what I really want for Christmas:
I want my childhood back.
… A child who is impractical, unrealistic, simpleminded,
and terrible vulnerable to joy.”
~ Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
No matter what holiday you are celebrating this season, I hope you search deep inside for that simple-minded joy of a child, and just have fun.
Make snow-angles. Light a fire in the fireplace. Drink hot cocoa with little marshmallows. Pick pine cones. Have a snowball fight. Sing silly holiday songs.
For just 10 minutes, give yourself the gift of JOY by just being a kid again.
“It came without ribbons. It came without tags.
It came without packages, boxes, or bags.
Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store.
Maybe Christmas means a little bit more.”
~ Dr. Seuss, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”

instead of what isn’t.
What are you thankful for? Can you list at least 20 reasons?
In honor of Thanksgiving, I am thankful for at least these 5:
– My HEALTH: A car accident 30 years ago left me with a broken neck. I am thankful for my recovery, and the support I have to stay flexible.
– My FAMILY: I am thankful for my first love coming back into my life nearly 10 years ago. Through our ups and downs, we’ve nurtured our beautifully blended family.
– My FRIENDS: They have provided a hand to celebrate, a shoulder to cry on, an ear to vent to, a silly face to make me smile, a hug when I really needed it, and many wonderful memories. I am blessed to have them in my life.
– My EDUCATION: I am thankful for my drive to never stop learning for it has continued to develop my skills and abilities, and opened doors to opportunities I couldn’t have before imagined.
– My CAREER PASSION: I am thankful for the opportunities over the last 2 decades to have touched the lives of many people, and to have them enrich mine as well. Confucius was right to say “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” I am blessed to be living my passion!
May you also stop to count your blessings. Happy Thanksgiving!
