    I am reading a book at the moment by James Patterson and I just loved these words of wisdom and thought I would share it with you all he explains it beautifully I thought.



    "Imagine life is a game in which you are juggling five balls. The balls are called work, family, health, friends and integrity. And you're keeping all of them in the air. But one day, you finally come to understand that work is a 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. And once you truly understand the lesson of the five balls, you will have the beginnings of balance in your life".

    Sounds like you have the balls nicely balanced to me!
