Story of life-Learn it and digest it properly...

This is one d emails that a friend forwarded to me and i think it is worthy enough to be share and read plus digest among the blog readers. Please spend some time in it and read it throughly and keep it in your mind always.

A
long time ago, there was an Emperor who told his horseman that if he could ride on his horse and cover as much land area as he likes, then the Emperor would give him the area of land he has covered.
Sure enough, the horseman quickly jumped onto his horse and rode as fast as possible to cover as much land area as he could. He kept on riding and riding, whipping the horse to go as fast as possible. When he was hungry or tired, he did not stop because he wanted to cover as much area as possible.
Came to a point when he had covered a substantial area and he was exhausted and was dying. Then he asked himself, "Why did I push myself so hard to cover so much land area? Now I am dying and I only need a very small area to bury myself."
The above story is similar with the journey of our Life. We push very hard everyday to make more money, to gain power and recognition. We neglect our health , time with our family and to appreciate the surrounding beauty and the hobbies we love.
One day when we look back , we will realize that we don't really need that much , but then we cannot turn back time for what we have missed.
Life is not about making money, acquiring power or recognition . Life is definitely not about work! Work is only necessary to keep us living so as to enjoy the beauty and pleasures of life. Life is a balance of Work and Play, Family and Personal time. You have to decide how you want to balance your Life. Define your priorities, realize what you are able to compromise but always let some of your decisions be based on your instincts. Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of Life, the whole aim of human existence.
So, take it easy, do what you want to do and appreciate nature. Life is fragile , Life is short. Do not take Life for granted. Live a balanced lifestyle and enjoy Life!
Watch your thoughts ; they become words.
Watch your words ; they become actions.
Watch your actions ; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character .
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny

And also remember to keep on smiling and be kind to others,because deep down in yourselves, you want other peoples to treat you in the same manner.

Take care my dear friends.....and believe in yourselves,you are not alone.

So what's d moral behind the story?

' Give me a call anytime and 'belanja' me a drink so that you have a reason to breath and work as a normal human being with appropriate level of stress'...haha , just ...not kidding . Spend some time with peopleSSS who are dear to you,socialize and exchange with them your thoughts and words.

Oh and one more thing which some of you may have forgotten-i hope not, when the day comes,you can't bring anything into your graveyard but perhaps.... only of those memories that you have crafted into your life and others, memories that you have acquired throughout your life-may it be pain or sweet,or even sour or bitter but one thing for so,memories that makes you shed your tears when you are old and gray (that would be after when you are 80 and above,so live and keep on living so that one day,i will officially give you a title 'OLD', so b4 80,quit your pathetic thinking or thoughts that you r old.

Salam..
