We try so hard during our life to be successful, we start preparing for a competition since we are just four years old. We study, learn things that will prepare us for the fierce competition of life.
We learn (seeing others) that the most important things of life are material things, we read a lot that what really matters is just the opposite, something we can not touch. But, anyway we still waste our life in a constant fight of getting more and more material stuff, we use precious time we may spend with our family pursuing this stuff.
Personally I will try as much as I can, to have more quality time with my family. A picture I took two years ago brought these thoughts to my mind. The picture was taken while playing being with my kids in a playground where they like to go.
At the end of the day, or at the end of your life, all you have left are your memories, the more and better memories you can store in your mind while young, will give you the better days when you get old.
