Do I come first or my family or the rest of the world?
If you think your family, then you will be very surprised to know it's not because when you work extremely hard day and night, week in week out exceeding the normal work hours by over 60 plus.
And in the forefront of your mind is your family (partner, kids) with deep love in your heart for them, ever you will burn out and break down. (Your depression will start slowly)
As the time passes you by and all your children have grown up with wisdom and knowledge,
Their financial structure has been set by your hard work over the years by sacrificing your youth health you ever reach old age.
Your children will fly away like birds to find their place in the big wide world and leaving you all alone in your home.
"Your inner voice calls out"
Do this or do that? Fulfil this dream and that dream constantly torturing you and when least expected your aspirations from the past will step in and remind you of all the things you have not done or yet to be done.
However, the saddest thing will be that you will have no more energy and strength to do anything because of old age.
And the world will pass you by while you're sitting at home lonely and miserable.
You come first?
"You must love yourself before you love another, by accepting yourself and fully being what you are, your simple presence can make others happy."
You simply organize your life around your own timetable, fulfilling all of your old dreams to your new dreams and aspirations.
Do the things you love and do the things that make you happy, have one day specifically for only you and your close friends, because they bring enjoyment and fulfillment to your life, and though you will be in touch with the world?
1) Have one day for relaxation
2) Live in the present and focus on the future.
3) Be organized
It sounds good but can I really do it?
Yes off course you can just by organizing your entire week, next a month after that the entire year.
If you study any successful person in the world, you will come to realize the key fact that they were extremely organized.
Monday to Sunday you have 168 hours in the week, minus your work and sleeping hours you are left with all the free hours to do whatever you want.
Intern you will find Time for yourself, family, friends and relaxation.
You and your time are extremely precious?
The beautiful world was your servant when you entered it. The trees produce oxygen for you so you live healthy; The earth produces beautiful fruit and vegetables for you to eat.
And the animals are your servants, some you eat others use as transport and others you keep as pets.
You are so unique and precious no one has your finger prints in the entire world, which means there will never be another person like you in this world ever again.
So you have one life, one chance, one shot to be the best you can be.
Remember when you love yourself and are happy everything around you becomes happy and full of positive energy.
Like your family, friends and the rest of the world, so I hope you realize one very important fact that "you come first".
