Wisdom through Humor
Social networking has been the trend nowadays. From children to teens and from young adults to senior adults, Facebook and Twitter are both in the top list of websites that generated millions of members. You can meet old and new friends through these sites. However, the true essence of getting involved socially might be neglected by many of us. So here’s a short fiction story, which hopefully might bring you a smile.
One night, the husband was busy typing in his computer. His wife peeked at their bedroom door and called, “Honey, its bedtime!”
“Few more minutes, babe!” he answered.
After two hours, his wife stood outside their door wearing a seductive lingerie and said in her soft voice, “Honey, let’s go to bed.”
“Wooo!” he exclaimed as his eyes opened wide. But he kept glancing back and forth to his computer and wife. Facebook or wife? Wife or Facebook? Well, got to settle for something good, he thought.
Then he turned back to his computer and exclaimed, “Few more minutes, babe!”

This short humorous story illustrates the essence of balancing one’s life in making the right decision. You may face a dilemma of being frazzled at work; or you may be stressed out even in the comfort of your own home. There are times you may face certain situation that you need to choose between two or more important things in your life. It may be your family versus career, peers versus responsibilities, principles versus vices, boss versus co-worker, personal endeavor versus demands in the society, or even between right versus wrong.
For instance, you handle a large sum of money in your company and you have problems with your finances because you need to bring your child to the hospital, which is a life and death situation. Would you be tempted to spend something you don’t own and pay it later? Well maybe you’ll answer yes or maybe you’ll say no, but many have already been tempted to utilize resources thinking it’ll be for a good reason. Your decision to spend your employer’s money to save your child will lead you to steal it. However, such action is a form of stealing and it is not the right thing to do. There are other alternative solutions to take – apply for a loan, borrow money from family members or friends, seek help from your local church or non-profit organization, or request for hospital financial assistance.
Online networking is good if you know your limits. The technology is there for people to use it to produce results; and not technology using people to do foolish things. You have the option to choose between “cyber productivity” versus “cyber meltdown.” It may seem quite complicated, but you do have a choice.
You need to balance your life in all aspects – spiritually, emotionally, mentally, socially, and physically. Your beliefs and values will influence your decisions. Most of all, to whom or where you seek guidance will also matter. Your decision will have a great impact to your actions, and your actions will determine the kind of life you will have. The way you live will ascertain your success or failure in your future.
