Finding Your Pearls

“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

Bryan Dyson Juggle Quote

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?
Need support? Let’s chat.

Advice. Life. Empowerment. Ambitions. Self-Esteem. Friendship. Confidence.

“Time is not measured by the passing of years
