It's A Balancing Act

"I don't know the key to success,
but the key to failure is trying to please everyone."
 — Bill Cosby

I do my best in trying to be everything to everyone, and yet I always seem to come up short.

I just want to be happy. I want to go to sleep at the end of the day, feeling accomplished and like I've done my best to make everyone else happy.

I hate when I fail at that.

There is a fine line between living to please yourself and living to please others. Too much of one, makes you selfish...too much of the other, can make you unhappy. I try very hard to balance this and usually...I do a good job. What is hard, is when I fail at it, but don't know what I could have done to avoid it.  

Life is a constant balancing act. I'm constantly balancing my money, my time, my energy, my attention...

It's a good thing you don't have to balance love. There is more than enough of that, to go around.
