Can you juggle?

My mom shared this with me today and I had to pass it along.
Imagine life is a game in which you are juggling five balls. The balls are called work, family, health, friends and integrity. And you are keeping all of the them up in the air. But one day you finally come to understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will always bounce back. The other four balls ... family, health, friends and integrity are all made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked or perhaps even shattered. And once you truly understand the lesson of the five balls, you wil have the beginning of balance in your life.
