Are you a juggler?

Probably. A juggler (malabarista) works in a circus (circo). He might throw several balls or plates in the air and hopes not to drop any of them.

There is another use of this word. We often have to “juggle” many things at the same time. Some of us have to juggle our work (or career) and family life (compaginar las responsabilidades profesionales con las familiares). Therefore, you are a juggler!

Life is often a “juggling act” (malabarismos). Perhaps Mr. Sanchez, the Spanish Prime Minister, will have to do a lot “complex juggling”, as he tries to keep his coalition together. Often, finance ministers find that balancing (nivelando el presupuesto) the budget is a complex juggling act.

So what do you do? You are a juggler, in life or in a circus.
