Do you work to live or do you live to work?


In our busy modern life, we tend to forget about paying attention to the most important thing, to our own self. People would generally think that caring about your own self too much is being selfish. In fact, taking good care of yourself is not selfish at all.

Taking care of your health is not selfish. If you are not in good health, how can you take care of your loved ones, and how can you live the life you are meant to live? In our busy lifestyle, we often forget to take care of our health. We might get overstressed, we might eat too much junk food, we might not eat enough good food that would support our well-being; and as a result, we might end up in sickness. Is it really worth it? Wouldn’t it be better to just slow down sometimes and find ourselves?

Unfortunately, in our modern days, a lot of people seem to work long hours just to pay their bills. Do you really live to pay the bills? What about the things you enjoy doing, your hobbies and your passion? Are you trying to build your career so hard that you already forgot what you enjoyed doing as a child, your talents or your passion? Why not sacrifice some of your precious time, and do that for a while?!

Afterall, what is the point of life if you are doing a job you do not like and work to pay the bills, the mortgage, the car, etc? I understand that we need to work to support ourselves financially, and that we cannot always do what we like. But there is a point in life when you have to switch off, find your true self and do what you really like. And if you are brave enough to follow your dreams, you might never have to work again just to pay the bills.
