--------Excerpt from a wise-man --------------

"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 these 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. How?

 * Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It
 is because we are different that each of us is special.

 * Don't set your goals by what other people deem important. Only
 you know what is best for you.

 * Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling
 to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.

 * Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living in the
 past or for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you
 live ALL the days of your life.

 * Don't give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is
 really over until the moment you stop trying.

 * Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is
 this fragile thread that binds us to each together.

 * Don't be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that
 we learn how to be brave.

 * Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's impossible to
 find. The quickest way to receive love is to give; the fastest
 way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep
 love is to give it wings.

 * Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only where
 you've been, but also where you are going.

 * Don't forget that a person's greatest emotional need is to feel
  appreciated.

 * Don't be afraid to learn. Knowledge is weightless, a treasure
 you can always carry easily.

 * Don't use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved.

 *Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the
 way. Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery and Today is a gift:
 that's why we call it - The Present."
