What is "juggling" ..

            .. FOR YOU ?

            ( nevermind what's all to be seen on videos, nevermind any ``best┬┤┬┤ definitions )

Please try to name just the keywords, first major associations that you have when you think of "your juggling"!  ( Be it what you actually do, be it what you want, what you're haunted by, be it what you love most about it. )

I think of 7b cascade, its rolling top of its pattern.   Bodythrows  ( mainly backcrosses, under the arm, reachovers, claws, rolls, with fewer balls then, selfspeaking ).   Multiplexing.

Peace, focus, fight, friends.

Throwing, catching, balance...

Failing again
Finding a moment of joy
Seeking perfection
Sharing all those moments with other jugglers

Then there's another trick to learn, another failure, another moment of joy, another thing to share

Something diverting to watch while sharing tea, cake and biscuits with my friends.

Clubs spinning in the air
Always trying to learn something new, or struggling with tricks I want to get better at
The feeling of accomplishment when I get a new trick
The joy of passing with other jugglers, trying to get a good round of a pattern that is a bit difficult
A way to enjoy myself, staying active and meeting friends

A way to keep in touch with some special people I've met over the years. Oh and a bit of showing off too.

*For me* it's a dance (not to be confused with dancing whilst juggling). I'd prefer if was also a little more 'puzzle solving' or creative puzzle solving.

I haven't been practicing much recently which is a great shame I think.

Problem solving is a great way to put it. For me, there are two kinds of problem solving for juggling:
While freestyling: my method here is to put myself in awkward positions, then figure out how to get out of them. Sometimes I'll try putting myself into the same position a few times, and seeing if I can react in different ways.
Knocking out a pattern on paper, or in my head. "I want this attribute, then this can I make it continuous, with no setup throws, and ambidextrous?"
