Life is ALL About Balance

Don't just have a career or academic goals.
Set goals to give you a balanced, successful life
Balanced means ensuring your health, relationships, and mental peace in good order
There is no point getting a promotion on the day of your break-up
There is no fun in driving car if your back hurts
Shopping is not enjoyable if your mind is full of tensions

Life is one of those races in nursery school where you have to run with a marble in a spoon with your mouth
If the marble falls, there is no point in arriving first
Same with the life where health and relationship is the marble
Your striving is only worth if there is harmony in your life
Else, you may achieve the success, but this spark, the feeling of being excited and alive, will start to die

One thing about nurturing the spark - don't take life seriously
Life is not meant to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here
We are like a prepaid card with limited validity
If we are lucky, we may last for another 50 years
And 50 years is just 2500 weekends
Do we really need to get so worked up?

It's OK, bunk a few classes, scoring low in a couple of papers, goof up a few interviews, take leave from work, enjoy your time with friends, to fall in love, had a little fight with our loved ones

Don't be Serious, be Sincere

Dear readers

I came across this short note from Facebook

Due to recent happenings near my surroundings, I would love to share this with all of you

I really think, in LIFE (which is really a temporary one) we have to make sure we achieve some sort of balance

As we have already known, LIFE is all about enjoying the journey, the scenery and the atmosphere
The destination a.k.a goal is merely a secondary objective

The destination is just our excuse to embark the journey, in order for us to choose which path should we take

After all, we need to always realize that we are just human

And human makes MISTAKES
