Life is a balance of Work and Play, Family and Personal time.
A long time ago, there was an Emperor who told his horseman that if he
could ride on his horse and cover as much land area as he likes, then the
Emperor would give him the area of land he has covered.
Sure enough, the horseman quickly jumped onto his horse and rode as fast
as possible to cover as much land area as he could. He kept on riding and
riding, whipping the horse to go as fast as possible. When he was hungry or
tired, he did not stop because he wanted to cover as much area as possible.
Came to a point when he had covered a substantial area and he was exhausted
and was dying. Then he asked himself, "Why did I push myself so hard to cover
so much land area? Now I am dying and I only need a very small area to bury
The above story is similar with the journey of our Life. We push very hard
everyday to make more money, to gain power and recognition. We neglect our
health, time with our family and to appreciate the surrounding beauty and the
hobbies we love.
One day when we look back , we will realize that we don't really need that
much, but then we cannot turn back time for what we have missed.
Life is not about making money, acquiring power or recognition . Life is
definitely not about work! Work is only necessary to keep us living so as to
enjoy the beauty and pleasures of life. Life is a balance of Work and Play,
Family and Personal time. You have to decide how you want to balance your Life.
Define your priorities, realize what you are able to compromise but always
let some of your decisions be based on your instincts. Happiness is the meaning
and the purpose of Life, the whole aim of human existence.
So, take it easy, do what you want to do and appreciate nature. Life is
fragile, Life is short. Do not take Life for granted. Live a balanced lifestyle
and enjoy Life!
Watch your thoughts ; they become words.
Watch your words ; they become actions.
Watch your actions ; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character .
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny .
Take it on the run.
