Drawn in the Lines

A well-known journalist in our country was interviewed and was asked how she end up her work with media. She recalled that her husband wanted her to stay at home after their marriage.Normally she mingled with the other women in the neighborhood where they could talk on anything including the misfortunes of other people. When her husband comes home, she also shared their talk with him.
For several times she did those, her husband noticed that she had started forgetting her views in life as a professional.
One day her husband told her that it’s about time that she find job and work.
That was the start of her career as a college professor and later she ventured into the broadcast media.
She pointed out the importance of using our time in a more useful and productive means. Time use must be purposeful enough not only to be more productive in life but also to keep peace in the world by preventing fights. A life drawn in these lines is moving its way towards success as everyone wants to achieve. Later on we become more time-conscious because we’re expected to perform our job well. We perform or job well because of our self-expectations and of others.
Wasteful use of time is impractical. If we have more needs to meet, we should work harder and harder. When we made both ends meet we should continue working hard until we have enough savings for our retirement.
Having enough resources to use when we retire means being happy for the rest of our life. We’d surely say that our life is well-spent and would gladly live it again if the chance were offered us (Bertrand Russell in Three Passions I Have Lived For).
Our hardwork and determination are set examples to our children and others who would like to succeed in life. Our examples maybe like a hand-drawn facsimile – an exact reflection of a life we want others to live theirs.
