I've never been able to find an answer to the question as to what exactly is the basic purpose of my life.
What do I want people to think, say and feel at my funeral? Looking back from that point, would I be happy and satisfied that did everything that I should have and could have?
What are the milestones, both big and small, that I want to come across on the way to the end point? Are they really worthwhile?
And most importantly, am I on the right road? For that matter, am I even ON a road? Gosh! Am I at least moving ahead??
"My Goal in Life" - that is the phrase which brings along so many thoughts, all at the same time, in an endless stream, that often leaves my mind exhausted. Everyone around me seems to have found the answer to THE BIG QUESTION! It is only me who seems to be absolutely flummoxed about it. Why?
On much deeper thought, it appears that everyone seems to be pursuing just one or two or few goals, and I have perhaps by mistake, perhaps a bit too ambitiously, set for myself multiple targets. And even after a lot of trying, I haven't been able to prioritize them, because doing so would mean compromising on the less important goals.
That's where the problem lies and yet honestly speaks...
There aren't any of them which can be categorized as "less important", because all of them are too close to my heart...
I guess I'll just have to juggle them like a clown in the circus and just hope that I'm good enough to earn an applause from the audience!
An aim to keep the plate full,
Always ready with a fork and a knife...
An aim to keep my family healthy,
And complete with a beautiful wife...
An aim to stitch up the rags,
Of a Nation torn by strife...
So much to do, I must hurry up,
All I've got is just one life!
