I reached the pinnacle of #success in the #business world. In some others’ eyes, my life is the epitome of success. However, aside from #work, I have little joy. In the end, my #wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to. At this moment, lying on my bed and recalling my #life, I realize that all the #recognition and #wealth that I took so much pride in have paled and become meaningless in the face of my #death.
You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone bear your #sickness for you. #Material things lost can be found or replaced. But there is one thing that can never be found when it’s lost – Life. Whichever stage in life you are in right now, with time, you will face the day when the curtain comes down.
Treasure #love for your #family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. Treat #yourself well and cherish others. As we grow older, and hopefully wiser, we realize that a $300 or a $30 watch both tell the same time. You will realize that your true inner #happiness does not come from the material things of this world. Whether you fly first class or economy, if the plane goes down – you go down with it.
Therefore, I hope you realize, when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk with, have sing songs with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth, that is true happiness! Don’t educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be #happy. So when they grow up they will know the value of things and not the price. Eat your #food as your medicine, otherwise you have to eat #medicine as your food.
The One who loves you will never leave you for another because, even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he or she will find a reason to hold on. There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few really understand it. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, you have to manage!
