LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST
WHEN a friendship or relationship is new, it’s easy to find excitement and endless pleasure and to see no fault in our friends or partners.
As time goes by, cracks begin to show as things take a turn and sometimes start falling apart. Once-happy couples fight over trivial issues, little things cause irritation and our children can drive us up the wall.
Instead of enjoying being with these people, we find ourselves just putting up with them. This is normal. Don’t lose hope. Life is a mammoth task, a landscape of high peaks and valleys that can sometimes be very deep and very dark, and there are mountains that can seem too high to climb.
This is the time to sit down, take stock, take a hard look at yourself, at where you are and where you want to be. Then keep on moving and working towards that summit. Never take your wife, husband, close friends or others for granted. Show them how much you value them, how privileged you are to have them around you, and thank God for them.
Work can be stressful, but try your utmost to find joy and fulfilment in it. Identify your joy in life, prioritise it and choose it above everything else. In return it will choose you. By so doing you’ll start enjoying life again instead of enduring it. MCDIVETT KHUMBULANI TSHEHLA, EMAIL
