Life's a Journey Not a Destination; Veer Off The Path Once in a While
I have to make this clear from the very beginning of this article. Most people are too busy trying to earn a living that they simply neglect to live. The truth is that there is more to life than just making money. There is more to life than paying bills and meeting obligations.
Life has to be lived and not endured. For this reason, people who want to get fulfillment out of live need to learn to enjoy life to the full. Having said this, I would also like to state this clearly. The journey of life is far more important than the final destination. Some of my recommendations for people making this journey are set out below.
Charity is a great virtue and it does not ever go out of style. Give up some of your vital time to great causes. Volunteer and help out the needy. It may not advance your career goals but it is a great idea. More to the point, it is great for your blood pressure.
Have Diverse Hobbies:
It is sad but true that most people do not have hobbies in the true sense of the word. A professor of English whose hobby is scrabble does not really have a hobby. Playing scrabble is like playing games with words. This means that the erudite professor is working even when he or she claims to be playing. Have hobbies; play the guitar, sing, dance, let yourself go and you will feel much better.
Most people are so caught up in the rat race of survival that they do not take the time to do some creative thinking. My advice to such people is a simple five letter word; think. A life without a bit of self-examination and introspection may not be worth the while of any individual. Take time out to do some analysis of certain events that affect your life. You lost your job some back, accept. Explore other options, it is part of the journey of life. Things are not going as well as you would prefer. Hang in there and continue to travel on the highway of life.
Finally, I have to say this too. Life's a journey not a destination veer;off the path once in awhile. This is how to enjoy the complicated but exciting journey of life.
