Having it all

“My boss is giving me a really rough time. My mother has to undergo a surgery. My wife is demanding more of my time. My work hours are horrible. And I have no time to run”, said a friend.

While I can empathize with him about things all coming at the same time, I wonder if things really need to be that bad. You can’t really control illnesses in the family, or bad bosses. But when you are barely surviving, do you really need to run? Having it all is a myth- in reality, you need to prioritise what’s important.
This is the fifth year that I am going to be a part of NaBloWriM. The writing mojo seems to have deserted me, but by elaborating either on a quote that touches my heart, or by attempting to capture a fleeting emotion, let me see how long I last.

Natasha - That's a well-taken point. No-one can have it all, no matter what the media says. The best we can do is to focus on what's most important to us.
