Create your own wall of fame from memorable moments

October 7, 2012
By SHIKHA PASRIJA , Times-Republican

Life seems to be running on an auto mode, from morning to night our routines are so programmed. Still a question often arises in our minds, are we doing enough? Striving for perfection at work, in relations, in life makes it even more stressful. Look around and there are billions of ways people can explain what they think perfection is because each person has a different way to look at situations. What makes sense for us might be totally irrelevant for others but that does not make us or them any wrong or better.

Festivities are about to start, shelves are loaded with stuff and hearts with feelings. Getting together with everyone brings joy but also comes with a baggage. Nothing comes without some side effects!

Let's make a way into this festive season being us and taking a pride in the decisions we have made and priorities we have chosen. Life will be way easier and fun if we all can play our roles being ourselves. We all are trying to climb this high ladder in life. Take a short break and look at how far we have come, get a stock of what we have gained and lost.
