End Point

So much of our time is embedded in an often simple desire or result. It is the same the world over – people work hard to get to a stage where they can literary buy more time at ease or leisure with family and friends. Years of work, struggle and hard savings are invested in getting to an end point were the simple joys can be appreciated.

A work or career path is often crucial to obtaining the essentials or any luxuries. Though the financial tasks many set themselves may actually cripple a great part of their lives until much later in life. The lure of status infects many as they strive for something better – but if it is all about show, the true cost must be reassessed. Comparisons are a waste of time. An honest limit of what you can truly afford is essential for a happy life. If house, car, business and credit card payments are creating untold stress – downsize these things so you can restart the adventure of living.
If you were working towards your true quest and you suddenly won the lottery or inherited a fortune – would that alter the direction you were going? Would you abandoned your goals for a poolside deckchair or would your desires still be strong? Wealth does change things; sometimes for good and sometimes for bad. If your primary goal was to make your fortune and the idea was just a vehicle to get there – you have reached your end point. If however passion and purpose remain; your quest and the journey to get there do not have an endpoint – it will be a lifelong pleasure with many milestones along the way.
Be who you are, forget about some grand finale and make time to enjoy what’s out there and what you do best! Make goals but don’t load yourself with punishments to get there. You are an accomplished being! Experience is all that we have and memory is its keeper.
