The above story is similar to journey of life. We push very hard every day to make more money, to gain Power & recognition. We neglect our health, time with our family & to appreciate the surrounding beauty & hobbies we have.
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 to enjoy beauty & pleasures of Life.
Life is balance of work & play, family & personal time.
Define your priorities realize what u are to compromise but always let some of your decision be based on your instincts.
Happiness is the meaning & purpose of life, the whole aim of human existence. So, take it easy do what you want to do & appreciate nature. Life is fragile & short. Do not take life for granted. Live a balanced lifestyle & enjoy life.
Just for today, i will be agreeable, I will look as good as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticize not one bit, not find fault with anything and not try to improve or regulate anybody but myself.
Just for today I will have a program, I may not follow it exactly but i will have it. I will save myself from two pests – hurry and indecision.
Just for today, I will have a quiet half an hour by myself and relax. During this half an hour, I will try to get a better perspective on my life.
Just for today, I will strengthen my mind, I will study, I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer; I will read something that requires effort, thought & concentration.
Just for today I will exercise my soul in 3 ways-I will do something a good deed and not get found out, if anybody knows of it, it will not count. I will not show anybody my feelings are hurt, they may behest but today I will not show it.
Just for today, I will try to line through this day only and not tackle my whole life problem at once
Just for today I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said “Most talks are as happy as they make up their minds to be”.
Just for today I will adjust myself to what is and not try to adjust everything else to my desires. I will take my luck as it comes and fit myself into it.
Just for today I will be afraid .I will enjoy that which is beautiful and will believe that as i give to the world, so the world will give to me.
