They say good is the enemy of best. To be the best you can be, you have to focus on one thing to the exclusion of others; you cannot be performing at your "best" if you always have several good activities to choose from. As many of my friends know, I am involved in several activities: running, yoga, music, Hapkido (which I recently started), drawing, blogging, and more. Most of my friends admire me for this; they say my life is very balanced. But I have been noticing that my so called "balanced life" has been causing a lot of imbalances in my work. Yes, I realize I have not been doing justice to my studies by being involved in so many activities. So, last night I pondered for a long time over what to kill - "I had to kill at least one activity, if not more." I finally came to the decision of sending "blogging" to the gallows - at least, for the time being. Even after letting go blogging, I may still be having too many activities on my plate, but then it's difficult to let go activities that you love. In fact, I will try to never let go running (or some form of physical exercise) and music, because these activities nourish the body and soul. People often give up a lot of their passions in the pursuit of success; I hope I never get so blinded by ambition that I give up all those activities that give me happiness.
So anyway, this will be my last post on this blog. Thank you for taking the time to post your friendly and critical comments on my posts - I value them a lot. I thoroughly enjoyed designing (and redesigning) my blog page, and posting my thoughts here. But then I feel it's time for me to let go blogging - at least, for a while.
Thank you all again! Namaskar! Alvida! Shab-a-khair! Good bye and good luck!
