"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...are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered." - James Patterson
I love the above quote so much. It is so telling of life, yet there are many people who do not seem to agree with this sentiment. While working is an essential aspect of life because the reward/result of the exchange [i.e., income for your services] provides for most of your needs and wants, the work you do will never be who you are because your job can change. Your place of employment can change in the matter of a moment, and you will learn the new rules of that workplace.
However, your family, health, friends, and integrity are all so fragile. One error could negatively impact the course of your future in the matter of seconds. It is so important to wisely invest [time] into those around you. Of those whom you can make the choice to have around you (boyfriend/girlfriend, friend/associate, specific coworkers) be certain they are worth your investment. You do not want people to deposit fraudulent checks into your spiritual bank account. It is worthless. These relationships in your life cannot be improved by any sort of monetary reward. They require the work and investment of your heart and time, which you can never get back.
NOTE: your husband/wife should not be an option whether or not to keep around once YOU made the decision to marry the person (unless abuse or infidelity is/are involved). Do not misuse the institution of marriage because of momentary selfishness. But this is a topic for another day.
As for my outfit, this is ankara I had for sometime now (like since 2013). I remembered it, dug it out of the closet, and had this little number made. I have more material so will make something else schnazzy from it. People so did not think this was ankara, and thought it was from Zara. Hehe! Some pics before I started playing with my darling niece.
Good day all. x
