Frankly speaking, it's an entire new week for me, though it's something routine, something to strive on every week to just keep on improving myself. There was a lot of new expectations and new intros indeed, many new things happening over the weeks, But thanks to Wilson, this Article hit me hard enough.
I will type it out, in a way i get to reemphasize the words too =)
Don't just have career or academic goals. Set goals to give you a balanced, successful life. I use the word balanced before successful. Balanced means ensuring your health, relationships mental peace are all in good order. There is no point of getting a promotion on the day of your breakup. 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 kept in your mouth. If the marble falls, there is no point coming first. Same is with life where health and relationships are the marble. Your striving is only worth it if there is harmony in your life. Else, you may achieve the success, but this spark, this 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 pre-paid card with limited validity. If we are lucky, we may lat 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 couple of papers, goof up a few interviews, take leave from work, enjoy with your friends, fall in love, little fights with your loved Ones. We are people, not programmed devices.
So yea, pretty much hit me. Harmony In Life. how much do i really have it? A few days ago someone asked me, what do i wish for if given a chance. Frankly speaking, how lame it is, i wish to have a Her. I think i have everything i want to, i don't yearn much for success, or a company, i think i have the life experience, the rush to race for something and all, juggling with multitask and all, but i just feel that, she will complete the cycle of my harmony life =) And hey, i do have a bunch of special friends too, but it's just a her. Love comes when you don't expect. I'm not expecting =) But waiting. Just hope they aren't the same ya? haha.
Life is Awesome. I didn't regret where i was and am and looking forward for more of What is God going to throw at me =) FAITH.
