Be Still

When I was sick and feeling weak at the hospital last month,
it occurred to me once again how we do not hold our own life....

But on a different angle we are still responsible for our life,
Firstly because I would not have high BP if I were careful of my food intake.
If I live a healthy lifestyle...

But then, anytime we could pass away... anytime...
And I believe that we do have our own time to live and to die.

So we should live our life the way we want to,
Not the way others wants us to.
I believe we should do the things that makes us happy.
And avoid those that gives us stress!

This is also true with the people we have in our life.
We should keep close the people who makes us happy,
and avoid those that makes us angry or sad....

Sometimes we have to Be Still for a while....
To think and value our existence...
Why are we alive?
For whom are we living for?
Why do we wake up everyday?
Why do we do the things that we do?
Are we doing the right things?
or are we just doing the things we do because we have to?
The most important question is are you HAPPY with your LIFE?

I know happiness is a vast thing...
But it's what keeps us going...
Sadness, anger, frustration, depression, stress...
these things drains us...
kills us eventually....

Spiky, well sometimes I really get sentimental and emotional. I guess I get it from reading too much of Paulo Coelho.
