Making a living and making a life.

Little pussy asked what's the difference between making a living and making a life. That's an interesting question?

Answer! When my family was a young one, i had to awake very early in the morning, worked until late night without seeing the children because they were already asleep, never had a chance to have meals with them and almost worked seven days a week. I called that making a living and i missed all the fun seeing the children grew. Should i had balanced my life, and learned to live a more meaningful life when the children were all growing up, i would have been more happier today. One might make a lot of money and yet not happy by making a living. Whereas making a life is to gather happiness while living. I pick the second choice.

There is a saying, "You should not go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back."

In case some may not understand the above phrase. The catcher's mitt is a baseball glove. Basically it means, don't keep everything of good to yourself. Share them with everyone while in making a life for yourself.

You are still very young. Go out and see the best out of your life there. Nothing will happen if you don't take the first step to make yourself happy. Do you are a very beautiful lady?
