A Good Life...

I have not seen poverty, hunger or dearth. But I work hard everyday for a good life. Good life for me is to have a bigger TV, bigger car and more amenities then what my parents enjoyed.

For five days a week
• I cringe every morning when the alarm rings and drag myself everyday out of bed for a job I hate.
• I work with people I don’t want to be like
• I don’t see a value add in doing what a do
• I take many coffees to keep up my attention.
• I miss meals or eat while attending calls
• I miss gym because of the long hours I work.
• Stress ensure I don’t sleep very well
• I crib at the first opportunity I get about anything related to work.

I work for good life, losing five days of a seven day week. I work for good life where the sum of my weekdays is the paycheck I earn at the end of the month. I work for a good life which enables me to not worry about day to day survival and allows me to dream, but it also detaches my from my dreams…

Earning a livelihood is the imp but need to redefine a phrase “A Good Life”

Ironically true but YOU can only change it if you want...instead we complain about life.
It's not the toughest thing to do.

Very truly said..we become so obsessed with making our life better that we never sit back and see what is already good there..may be we have to redefine what we mean by a " good life"
