#AtoZChallenge J for Juggle

I asked M "J for?"  She was not agreeable to the question itself as the alphabets start from A. So I had to start from A with A for and go all the way to J. Now as we move ahead with this challenge this routine is going to get tougher . :)

She said J for "juggly". 

She did add that if you juggle oranges you need to keep tossing them from one hand to another or else the oranges would fall down and get spoilt. Makes sense.

The word juggle reminds me of visiting the circus with my family as a kid. "Gemini Circus" used to be famous then. When a circus set up a tent in the city, it was a matter of discussion everywhere and a great opportunity for a family outing.

The acrobats in their glittering costumes would stun us with their death defying performances. Atleast to a 7 or 8 year old's eyes they were definitely death defying. I remember the biker going round and round in an enclosed metal sphere. The trapeze artists going to and fro and the clown who would always look lost amongst all the talented acrobats and purposely fall down to evoke laughter. The dogs that would do the tricks and the tightrope walkers and the jugglers of course. 

We are all jugglers in a way. Trying to juggle different roles and responsibilities. Oh yes! each one of us plays a multitude of roles at a time and tries to do justice to every single one of them. Every one of that role is significant in this huge game called life and we all try to do our best in all of those roles - at home, work or otherwise.Our constant struggle is to juggle all the oranges perfectly so that they don't fall.

So if you are reading this, stand up , look into the mirror and applaud for yourself. (One from me too). We all are doing our best. And sometimes our best is all that is required.


  1. I am bored easily. Therefore, I keep juggling lot of things simultaneously.

  2. I always associate Juggle with either the circus joker or the bartender and off late work.

  3. That's a nice way of looking at it! I have a pretty long list of jobs I need to do every day, and it kind of is like a juggling act. Somehow that makes it seem a little more fun.

  4. Great post for J. Yes, we do all juggle on a daily basis . . . Cheers, MDC

  5. Was initially going to write about how women juggle various jobs each day, home work and more. All of us do need to give ourselves an applause once in awhile, even when we aren't able to do justice to all our roles. We deserve it:)
