Nearly 2,000 years ago, Marcus Aurelius, the emperor of Rome who may have been even better known as a philosopher, wrote that successful living is "more like wrestling than dancing."
Today, the world is different. Today, we need to change that image and the simile to metaphor.
Today, successful living is not like anything. Successful living is juggling.
You need to juggle sometimes precariously your family life, a full-time job, and community commitments while somehow managing to maintain a healthy level of emotional and physical fitness.
