Juggling

Juggling...a little known something that I had to learn to do. I was actually sent to juggling school by a client who for some unknown reason, thought it would make a good commercial if I was juggling cream rinse bottles. All I could think...how was I going to talk and juggle at the same time much less look relaxed as if it were common place to do something idiotic like that. The school was complete with clowns and people trying to learn the same thing. I was way behind the curve....practiced for hours at a time. I kept on trying, failing, trying, failing and eventually, I accomplished juggling four pins. Balls were easy...pins a whole other feat.

Little did I know that juggling school was a form of self preparation for things we all juggle today. From work, family, friends, sleep...right down to finding enough hours in a day. We can accomplish anything we put our minds to....we just have to try.

I'm off to accomplish something...not sure if I will succeed, but I'm sure going to give it a try!

Wow.
I never knew you were SENT to a school to learn to juggle...
What do you do?! Lol
I can't juggle anything worth a darn.
I tried, but failed miserably.

i can't believe you learned to do it!!! that is amazing! i can juggle daily life (really, what choice do i/we have in that matter!), but i am an ultra klutz that could never do the real juggling. you amaze me, and good luck with whatever you are attempting next!!! but please say it doesn't have anything to do with a tightrope!

Me thinks you need to post a pic of you juggling some of your jewels!

I love that quote...

Funny, one of my friends always tells me that "I don't know I can't, so I just do" Wonder if that's the same thing?

She made that comment after I decided to teach my horse to drive and then showed him in driving classes.

Now juggling, I'm not so sure about. That would take lots of talent!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. You're probably right...the more distratctions, the less I have to face realities that are surely at hand....

So is this the solution as to why I can't juggle.... I just want trying hard enough, I needed to practice more; I gave up too easily believing I can't do something. Mmmm you are right practices that can be applied to real life. Something to consider for sure.

OMG!!! I can't believe you've never shared this before! I'm totally jealous. I tried for years and gave up...well, because I'm blond...and left-handed. I opted, instead for learning how to whip together balloon animals - speedy creepy clown style. HEY! Maybe when we get a little older, we could run off to join the circus together! LOL!
Hugs!

Oh my! So did you go through with it and juggle the bottles in the commercial? I'd LOVE to see that!

Wow - that's cool that you learned to juggle! I used to have a good friend who would juggle machetes and flaming torches around my head. I don't have any clue how you do it...I've never been able to even juggle balls!

Karen said...

If I learn to juggle pins will it help me juggle everything else? I could use a skill like that, lol! Thanks for the nice comment on my blog, sometimes I wonder if I'm just writing for my own amusement.
I'm impressed with your accomplishments including juggling!

I think winning the lottery would be pretty cool.
I might knock myself unconscious at juggling school.
Have a super weekend.

I agree. I think that you can make time for just about anything if you really want to!

Sandra said...

I'm so impressed. I think this is amazing that you can really juggle.

Missy said...

What a thought! Wow! I never really thought about learning to juggle! I suppose I thought people just juggled! Great post!

I feel like I spend my life juggling responsibilities. I guess we all do. The trick seems to be to not get hit in the head when you drop one of the pins.

This is very cool! I can honestly say I've never met anyone else with this claim to fame :)

And so true that now you must juggle other things in your life. I bet you are a wicked multi-tasker!

That's hilarious. I would love to learn to juggle balls. Real life is more fun when it's chaos :)
