Balanced Life

Work-Life Balance...is not applicable if you believe that your work is your life. Others make work as an excuse for their laziness to go out and mingle with other people - those one can see, feel, hear, smell, and...taste. Example:

"Yo, get-together on the 25th! See you there!"
"Ehhh.... I am busy eh...."
"Huh? It's after your shift kaya! Dude, it's on a Friday!" (Yes, the dialogue is between 2 conyo friends. So don't make pakialam that much, 'kays?)
"Have work eh..." (Truth is WLB-Loser is just really lazy to go out.) "I need to finish this real soon."
"Pfft, whatever, loser naman. Wala ka bang life?!"
And then there's....
"Define life nga sige."


MORAL: Balanced means ensuring your health, relationships, (and) mental peace are all in good order. There is no point of getting a promotion on the day of your break-up. There is no fun driving your car if your back hurts. Shopping is not enjoyable if your mind is full of tensions.

Don't take life seriously. If we are lucky, we may last another 50 years. And 50 years is just 2,500 weekends. Do we really need to get so worked up?

Those words were taken from a shared life lesson in Facebook (Chetan Bhagat of Symbiosis as it read).
