Imagine yourself juggling at least three balls in the air. I learned how to do this from an expert juggler months ago and was able to do so, albeit briefly. I was, of course, ecstatic when I did. (I have yet to practice with the ideal ball size and weight.)
I often if not always juggle balls in the air, at least three, if not four or more, in my life. How many of you can relate?
Those of you who are parents juggle tons of balls daily in your relationships with your spouse/partner, child(ren), career, home, and activities. I can understand that.
I am not necessarily speaking about multi-tasking, though I can do that seemingly quite well. Rather, I am speaking primarily as a singleton, that is being dependent on yourself for everything in your life.
That is, as in my case, working a full-time day job - I work for a nonprofit agency - commuting approximately 1-1/2 hours per day to and fro and shopping, cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc. in addition to blogging daily lately (for this Ultra Blog Challenge) and commuting everywhere by bus.
Whew! Have I made you tired yet? That is only the basics! There are also errands, appointments, activities (primarily choir, community events, energy healing exchanges), and so forth. You get the drift.
If I was to tell you what I sometimes do in one day yet alone a weekend (Saturday and Sunday) or weekend day (Saturday or Sunday), I might just blow your socks off! (I do at least with one or two of my friends whom I sometimes make time for, when possible once a week.) In fact, I sometimes amaze myself in what I can do and what I am capable of. Truly!
In this way, I can so relate to my Mom who has a hard time sitting, sitting down except to eat a meal or rest her feet/legs from time to time and/or to watch some TV (usually news). She barely sits down, I swear!
Though I mainly sit at work and when I am on the computer typing/blogging at home, except with the occasional standing from time to time, I am essentially "on the go" a lot. Thus, one nickname I refer to myself as is the 'Energizer Bunny.'
Are you familiar with the commercial that aired years ago with the (Duracell) battery-operated bunny? That's what I am referring to; see the photo below. That is what I am or tend to be like generally.
It is like I am on automatic pilot at times, busy doing. Another expression I have for myself is 'busy bee' as in a bee flitting and buzzing around from flower to flower, or in my case, from one to-do task item to another. (Photo from Wikipedia)
How many balls do you tend to juggle in the air? What kind of activities and talents fill up your life?
