Life is a Juggling Act October 15, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Life Balance, Mindfulness.

Life is a juggling act.   

At times, we have so many “balls” in the air that one gets away from us and  drops with a resounding thud.  Or a clattering clunk.      

When you hear that resounding sound, take a lesson from your cat . . .

Act unperturbed.  

“What?!  I meant to do that!  It’s all part of the act.” 

Aah . . . that’s better!

Just a wonderful image – so full of joy.

We met this happy chap at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday. He exuded joy, and shared a cup of good cheer to everyone who passed by. Kids giggled. Adults smiled appreciatively.

And some stopped to snap the happy chap’s photo. 😀

It’s when one of those balls shatters. Into a million pieces. You just have to get the broom and dust pan, sweep it up and decide which new hobby to pursue.

Bwahaha! I’ve never quite mastered the art of juggling . . . so I always juggle balls that bounce! 😉

Love seeing the happy in these pics. What a great start to the morning!

nrhatch - October 15, 2012

Yes! Delighted to share some HAPPY on a Monday morn. We loved this mellow fellow. 😀

I’m not quite there mentally but I do like your photos.

nrhatch - October 15, 2012

Slow start here too, Tammy. I’m relying on coffee to keep me from plunging back into slumber.

I just love how clowns make me feel – happy and glad to be alive, I love the photo – may I please use it (with acknowledgment to you of course) in an upcoming blog?

nrhatch - October 15, 2012

Yes! Be my guest!

I should have gotten his name and business card so I could give him credit . . . he did all the work.

Thanks Nancy.

LOL. This made me smile, you are on a roll today. 😀

nrhatch - October 15, 2012

We met this cheery chap at the Bradenton Farmer’s Market on Saturday and his antics made us laugh out loud.

Next time our paths cross, I’ll have to get his business card so I can give credit where credit is due.

7. Pocket Perspectives - October 15, 2012

Happy in the evening too!

nrhatch - October 16, 2012

He’s a happy chap . . . overflowing with good cheer.

Or I could react like my cat: run under the bed!

nrhatch - October 16, 2012

If our cats did something “awkward” . . . they would immediately sit down to give themselves a bath.

“Move along, people. Nothing to see here.”

“What? Oh, that. Just a new ninja move.”

“Who fell off the TV? You’re crazy, Willis. It was most certainly not me.”

[…] I read a post from Nancy at Spirit Lights the Way.  The picture that accompanied the post made me laugh out loud.   I love clowns and always have […]

Hey I’ve just had a couple days like that and now with the painter coming for a week, life should be interesting!

nrhatch - October 16, 2012

If the stress gets to be too much . . . sit down, take a load off, and watch the paint dry. 😉

Aah . . . that’s better.

sweetdaysundertheoaks - October 16, 2012

I think Ima leave and go to St. Lou. Leave CH to deal.. 😀

nrhatch - October 16, 2012

That might be just the thing to do! 😀

11. Three Well Beings - October 16, 2012

Juggling acts are best left to the professionals…I don’t do them very well! 🙂 But I like the idea of acting unperturbed. That’s what I should be practicing rather than the juggling! 🙂 Good challenge, Nancy.

nrhatch - October 17, 2012

Yes. As we master the art of acting unperturbed, we move from a torrent of tears (or a cascade of curses) to a shrug and an “oops.” Or even an “aah.”

That’s better!” 😉

Meow! You didn’t see that ball drop, did you? Me neither.

nrhatch - October 18, 2012

Nope. Nuh un. I didn’t see a thing. 😉
