i need a rest..
Life seems to be moving on in such a fast pace that i sometimes wonder if i can ever catch up with it..Technology is moving fast. Our trains our moving fast. We rush to work. We rush through our meals. Ever stopped to look at the surroundings carefully? When was the last time u noticed someone near u has left u? When was the last time u stopped to take a look at the people ard u?When was the last time u sat down and listened to the beautiful music ard u?
All of us are kept to our own small world.on the bus,we text people,we listen to our mp3s. At home,we watch the tv,on the computer,oblivious to what's going on outside the small screen. Why must things progress? Why must there always be improvements? Does improvements always mean that we'll feel happy? I doubt so.
While we think that having lifts at HDB blocks are good enough,we now want lifts that stop at every level. So when we have that,we want lifts that reach our level fast. And we're done with that,we want even better lifts. Arent we greedy?
When we make our first million,we want a second,a third and many many more millions to be made. Yet, are we feeling happy? Ao what if we have lots of money? Can that buy us happiness? Can that buy us friends? Can that satisfy that little devil that's in our heart? NO.
However, we let this devil continue to make us miserable.
Take a businessman for instance.He slog hard. He gained alot in return. Yet, he's actually lost many invaluable things. Along the way, he lost true friends,he lost capturing the beautiful sights He lost his love for his business. Nope, I'm not saying that being a businessman is bad. He can still have a happy family. He can still have many true friends. But, does he have time for them?
Take another man, just a simple man who works for the company. He may not have all the wealth in the world. But he has his friends who share with him. He enjoyed many breath-taking scenery created by nature.
Which do you prefer? I prefer the latter.
