Another year. Another three hundred and sixty five days to plan, to spend, to live. Quite an ordeal it sounds doesn’t it when we put it this way? And have you noticed, how every year-end we tend to feel that the year gone by could have been better. We may have got many of the things that we had desired but, that uncomfortable feeling still persists, doesn’t it?
Richard Bach says, “The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.”
That makes us have much more to reflect upon considering the fact that we are the delicate links with our families as daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, career women, sons, brothers, husbands, fathers, professionals and what not. Don’t you think in such a scenario, we need to do be more careful about the choices we make in our lives?
Each year brings with it numerous opportunities. How wisely or carelessly we use them depends entirely upon us. We could become foolishly emotional in our responses to situations or cold bloodedly logical. What finally stand out are our PRIORITIES.
At the fag end of our lives it is not our booming careers or our social circle that will count if all we have in our minds and hearts is guilt and regret. Just think calmly. Ten years from now, will we be content with the choices we have made? So, let’s just sort out the priorities in our lives. Like, what do we want first? Is it a career? Marriage? Both? What comes next? Are we willing to adjust to accommodate a growing family?
Priorities are of utmost importance in our lives because they make or mar the peace within us. Once we are clear about what we want and why we want then, life becomes easy to sail through. We owe it to ourselves to get onto the right track. This New Year, let us all do some re-thinking about our goals. Life is too short to fritter away in anger and remorse. Proper perspectives and priorities and, making the most of our lives, let’s just do that. And of course have a wonderful new year!
