Juggling Family and Fitness: Live Life on Your Terms
What is a Juggler?
A juggler is someone who performs juggling acts with their hands. They are usually very skilled at juggling. Some jugglers have been known to perform tricks such as the “Hanging Man” or the “Rope Trick”. Other jugglers may only juggle one object while others juggle two objects simultaneously.
A juggler is generally considered to be a person who enjoys performing juggling acts. There are many different types of jugglers.
Some jugglers enjoy playing music while other jugglers prefer to play instruments such as the guitar or piano.
Some jugglers may also juggle in order to entertain themselves during times when they feel bored or lonely. However, most jugglers consider performing juggling acts as a hobby rather than a job.
Jugglers often come from all walks of life. Some jugglers grew up poor and were forced to work odd jobs in order to survive.
Others juggle because it helps them cope with stress. Still others juggle out of passion, but some do so out of necessity due to physical limitations such as arthritis or limited mobility in their arms or legs. Many jugglers are single parents raising children alone. They juggle in order to pay the necessary expenses of raising a child such as food, clothing, and shelter.
Jugglers may also consist of people who suffer from mental illnesses such as depression or bipolar disorder. They juggle in order to cope with their mental illnesses.
For example, someone who suffers from bipolar disorder may juggle to create a sense of order and control within their life when they suffer from a “manic” episode. With proper treatment, medication, and support, many jugglers are able to lead relatively normal lives.
What is a Family?
A family consists of two parents and their children who all live or stay together. Families may also consist of grandparents, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
In some families the parents are straight while in others they are of the LGBT community. Some families consist of a single parent and his or her children.
Other families live with other relatives or family friends in the home.
Many families experience conflict but many families also enjoy one another’s company and the time that they spend together. Family members may experience a sense of loneliness or alienation if they do not feel as if they belong in their family.
Some family members may feel closer to one another than others, but most family members have a general sense of love and support for one another.
The Juggling Family
I am a middle-aged woman. I was born in New York and currently live in the state of New York which is in the United States of America.
I have two children (a son and a daughter) who are in their twenties. I also have a dog who is fairly young. I juggle on a regular basis mainly because I enjoy juggling. My kids do not juggle but my son plays the drums and my daughter sings.
My husband does not juggle, but he plays the bass guitar and enjoys listening to music. My parents are retired and do not juggle, but they enjoy playing cards.
My in-laws do not juggle, but they enjoy playing board games.
I am a member of a juggling club that practices on a weekly basis. Some of the members are professional jugglers while others are amateur jugglers.
There are a few family members who also attend. My son, daughter, husband, and in-laws do not attend on a regular basis because they have other interests or hobbies that they would rather do, but they may attend from time to time.
The juggling club that I am a member of hosts an annual juggling festival every summer. In the past I have performed at this festival along with other members of my club.
We have also hosted this festival at the local high school where it is held.
The juggling festival consists of professional jugglers performing, amateur jugglers performing, and vendors selling juggling equipment. There is also a session where people can learn how to juggle.
Some people come to this festival to learn how to juggle. Others come every year just to visit with friends and colleagues.
The Club is like a family. We all have common interests and we all get along.
We may have some disagreements from time to time, but we all agree to respect each other and be courteous.
We may not be related by blood, but it feels like a family.
The word “family” can cause strong reactions in people for various reasons. For some, the word “family” conjures up happy thoughts of being surrounded by loved ones.
For others, the word “family”
