I came across this quote from the Dalai Lama yesterday. It says it better than anything else I have read or could express in words myself. When asked what he finds really puzzling about humanity, the Dalai Lama answered something like this.
“Man. He spends half of his life making himself sick whilst trying to make money and then spends the other half spending that money trying to make himself better”.
Better late than never though! But I guess sometimes there isn’t enough money to correct the big problems created from a lack of looking after oneself in the critical years.
Think about this. There is a reason why they say put YOUR OWN oxygen mask on first if there is an emergency on a plane.
You might think you are putting your family first by working yourself in to the ground and sacrificing all your time but I would say you haven’t thought about that enough yet!
