I saw a child yearning and crying for a cone of ice cream. After his repeated tantrums, he was given one. But instead of relishing the ice cream, he got busy playing. Finally the ice cream melted and dripped away.

You are that child and your life is that ice cream cone. You try your hardest to earn money and use every trick possible to please the boss. But when you finally get a raise, you completely forget about spending it and get busy with earning more. Stop it! When you get what you want, take a break and enjoy it. Life is a gift. Don’t live it without purpose. Find out how you want to enjoy it and then enjoy it. Grab the opportunity and enjoy life while you can, instead of regretting it afterwards.
