Along time ago, there was an Emperor who told hishorseman that if he could ride on his horse and cover as much land area as he likes, then theEmperor would givehim the area of land he has covered. Sure enough, thehorseman 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 stopbecause he wanted to cover as much area as possible. Came to apoint when he had covered a substantialarea and he wasexhausted and was dying. Then he asked himself, "Why did Ipush myself so hard to cover so much landarea? Now I am dying and I only need a very small area to bury myself."
The above story is similar with thejourney of our Life. We push very hardeveryday to make more money, to gain power and recognition. Weneglect our health, time with ourfamily and to appreciate the surrounding beautyand the hobbies we love.. One day when we look back, we willrealize 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 orrecognition . Life is definitely notabout work! Work is onlynecessary to keep us living so as to enjoy the beauty and pleasures of life. Life is a balance ofWork , Family andPersonal time.. You have to decide how you want to balance your Life. Define your priorities, realize what you are able to compromise butalways let some of your decisions be based on your instincts. Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of Life, the whole aim ofhuman 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.
