Balance your dreaming Vs. your living.
Don't so focus on your dreaming, projecting, forecasting of your future to miss out on the daily bliss of living.
Don't also do your living to blindside on the responsibility of planning, putting something aside for tomorrow.
Engage today and tomorrow equally, if you don't mind.
It is wrong to walk about stressed, hungry, ragged - doing without basic needs and luxuries of life; starching away so much for tomorrow.
To be like Emeka (a petty wares merchandise, trekking around the neighborhood selling) who ate just vegetables and akpu (cassava) twice a day, having just 2 shirts and 1 trousers; who went down to fever - for refusing to do the required medical test.
Upon his demise, his relatives came for his stuffs which consisted of a mattress, stove and an arm chair.
To everyone's dismay (owing to the way he went about his life), a sack full of money fell from the makeshift ceiling in the one room apartment, he was living in.
I don't know why he laid down his life for a future he needed his life to reach and fulfill. This is a true life story, happened in the ghetto neighborhood where I grew up.
It is equally wrong to be like uncle Matthew (also of the same neighborhood) an offshore worker, who spent all his earnings on partying with friends whenever he was back from the oilfield; and this went on until the Rig he had been with for 10 years had reason to leave the Niger-Delta offshores.
It didn't also take long for Uncle Matthew to squander his payoff, on the promise they will be called back soon. 2 years he was still waiting; and he has been the area beggar, nuisance of the neighborhood - till I left the neighborhood.
I don't know about you, I hate both outcomes, Emeka's and uncle Matthew's.
Balance is the way to go, so look forward to work-life balance.
