Loving relationships. As much as some people swear they are happy being alone, we need human companionship to feel alive and part of world.
Quality time with family and friends. Everyone thrives when you take time to enjoy important people in your life. Even if youíre a workaholic like me, make sure to set aside time everyday for important relationships. You think that if you do all work now, you can make it up to them later when youíve made it. Most of time, by time youíve made it, important people in your life have left. It happens all time.
A way to support all of above. Yep, thatís where money comes in. But itís more than that. It has to be some- thing you like doing, or every workday will seem like a prison sentence.
Dreams and goals. Without something to strive for, something to live for, we end up in a tedious existence. We need something that keeps fire going Ė no matter how old you are. How many people have you known who reached retirement only to spend rest of their days in front of television?
Faith. It takes many forms throughout your life. Faith in your God, faith in yourself, faith in your kids. Youíll find many times in your life when you just need to have faith that things will come out ok. Faith is what get us through tough times. It has been proven in numerous studies that those who practice their religion live longer, healthier, and happier lives.
Whenever you feel discontent coming on, do some soul searching and find out what youíve been ignoring. It may seem like a lot of work to tend to all this stuff. Itís just like juggler. When you drop one of balls, rest come dropping down too. You need to pay attention to all of balls. Instead of a balancing act, letís call it a Juggling Act!
