Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life. – Dolly Parton
Meaning of this Quote
Life is short. Life is full of unpredictable surprises too. There are endless chances life throws at you to let you enjoy the chance of living your life. You should enjoy life by going to places you want to go, eating whatever you want, by doing everything you always wanted to do.
There are different definitions to people around the world about their idea of living life. In most of the cases, it will not match with the idea of others. That does not mean you are wrong. We all are different human beings, and we have our own ideas to live a life just as we want to enjoy it.
However, in most cases, what we see is the people are trying to have a secure life. They don’t have dreams anymore; they don’t pursue to achieve a dream. These people are so worried about making a living that they forget to live a life.
These are the people who are always trying to gather as much as they can for their future, their children, their family, their personal needs and everything. All they worry about is money, all they want is economic stability and security for their family.
You will see these people always telling that they will live their lives later, that is why they are gathering so much. But little do they realize that when they finally will stop worrying about making a living, and start enjoying their life, it will be too late for them to soak the energy and the enthusiasm life offers them.
Therefore, you should not worry so much about living that you completely forget to make a life and live it. Yes, making a living is important, without the living, how will you live, but it is also important to appreciate the importance of life and live it to this moment.
So enjoy every moment life throws at you, be it a problem you need to solve, or an opportunity you need to grab, this is the best thing you can do.
