Our life needs to embrace the moments doing the best things possible within our limited boundaries. We always complained about our workloads or study pressure. Suddenly we are in a situation where we have all the time but aren’t sure what to do. We can just do the things that we wanted to do but couldn’t manage to do for not getting the time within our limitations
We certainly always heard about how important it is to have a plan in our life. But most of us do not have a plan. We all are just running without knowing any directions for all the external forces that life puts into us. So here we have all the time for asking ourselves for the purpose.
