A 70+ years old woman was interviewed by Oprah. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older. Wnat caught my interest is one of her answer: I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as “making a life”.
I’ve met several people, which responds differently towards the word “work”, “life”, and “living”. Some people work for a living. They have no choice, but to work as hard as they can, to feed themself and their family. Some others live to work. They are basically the workaholic type, who found fun in their work, and because of that, kind of ignoring their family and friends. These 2 people share the same characteristic, both is making a “living”.
“Making a life”, is about…. well…. living. Human is a social person, so make friends instead of working on yourself. Life is also about, enjoying the creation of God, so go to new places.
And finally…. people love to hear story. So, make sure you have enough story to tell your kids and grandkids….
