I missed blogging yesterday! I had every intention and I actually sat down with my iPad ready to write, but my eyes started drooping and there was no way I could have finished my blog. So I gave up and decided that today I will blog for the 2 days.
This is my birthday week and every year as I get older I think about mortality. My birthday reminds me that I have finite time on this earth and I need to make the most of it. This is my one and only chance to do what I want to do coz it is not like I am getting out alive from here. I read this interesting article yesterday and it brought me back the emotional struggle that I went through last year.
After working really hard for 12 years, I quit to reassess my life and what I wanted from it. In the struggle and race of life, I had forgotten to live. I had become a person that I did not recognise myself. I am a changed woman now. I will always work as that gives me pleasure but it is not the most important thing in my life. I enjoy my evenings and weekends with my family and friends. I am not stressed or tired and am relaxed when I come home. Yes, I don’t have as much money as I used to but that is unimportant. I am happier and using the money I am earning for what it is there for. Sometimes we forget that we will leave everything material in this world. So earn to enjoy and lead a fulfilling life.
Tomorrow is my birthday and I think this quote is apt for what I feel……till tomorrow….
