My cousin sent me this quote and it seems like a great one to share as we bring in a new year. Since the struggling global economy may make 2009 a difficult one, I felt like this quote puts things into perspective.
Happy New Year to everyone!
“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them–work, family, health, friends, and spirit–and you’re keeping all of those in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls–family, health, friends, and spirit–are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.”
~Brian G. Dyson, speaking at Georgia Tech’s 172nd commencement address in September 1996.
