A friend sent me this and I have spent many
minutes thinking about it. I hope you enjoy it too.

In a university commencement address several
years ago, Brian Dyson, CEO of Coca Cola
Enterprises, spoke of the relation of work to
one's other commitments:

"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."


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 they 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 it; 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, 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.
