“Desires dictate our priorities, priorities shape our choices, and choices determine our actions.”
― Dallin H. Oaks
Getting older is realising the gravitas of the things that shape up the notions of the life of an individual.
As we grow older and so our choices of desires and the actions to achieve that desires also modulate as per the priorites. While an infants priority is to get hugged by the loved ones and which makes them happy. A kids priority might be receiving a new toy or a new bicycle.
We are what we do, our actions in the lineage of this tenure defines us. As we follow the path of ageing our priorities got muzzled and we tend to forgone the joy of all those little things which actually carries its own matter and gravity during our developmental phase of being a mature individual.
You can buy and avail all the luxury in this world but you can’t buy the happiness and love. All the worthy things in this spectrum of life is invaluable, the special arrangement made by the nature makes us to realize that happiness and love has to be earned by the constant vigor of patience and humility.
What goes around comes around, With the rapid haphazard catankerous pace of this span of life, the importance of finding happiness in the small things comes to sieze and all that matter is the culmination of money and materialistic things which can only be availed if one possess the time to bank upon all this materialism.
“The life you have left is a gift. Cherish it. Enjoy it now, to the fullest. Do what matters, now.”
― Leo Babauta
You can earn money but you can’t buy time. Time alone is the factor which can alleviate any dismay of life. With time the parameter of manipulating the magnitude of success varies. In school it was the grades which calls one successful, In work it is the performance which speaks the magnum of success, while hovering around in this tunnel happiness becomes overshadowed by the accolades of superficial batches which actually carries menial significance on the death bed.
What actually makes one successful is the humility and portraiture of igniting a moment of hope and joy in the other individual without caring about the consent of any reward, its all about the way of showing gratitude and making the other person a luminary.
“The problem with the world is that people are busy searching for keys but don’t know the locks that they would open.”
