Doing what you like is freedom.
Liking what you do is happiness.
— by Frank Tyger
I believe if every person in life right from the childhood to life in later stages experiences the above quote, the world would be such a peaceful place to live. Nobody would get a chance to grumble and the productivity of every activity by every individual would be more as everyone is getting to do things as per ones liking. By this statement I mean of the positive activities ( and not negative activities ).
But does every individual get to live such a life? Alas, no
There is so much social,economic,peer pressure in the world today. .
Parents want their kid to attend so many extra curricular activities that a kid is made to attend one activity class after the other. Does anyone care to ask the child , little one do you want to go to x, y, z class ??, do you like the x, y or Z activity? And the grind begins for a child.
I believe it is very necessary to do what one likes. The choice should be given right from childhood by parents without discriminating between a boy and a girl child.
Give them wings, provide the fire underneath their wings to soar up in their journey towards their liking and the joy in their expression will make them want to soar higher and higher.
This principle is applicable in every relationship.The husband should not expect that the wife should only cook, babysit, do the laundry and other household chores irrespective of the wife is going for a job or is a homemaker. He should make an effort to lend a helping hand whether he likes it or not because I am sure in today’s age no girl is interested to do the thankless job on a daily basis. And in such a situation when she has to do work ( even if maids are there to do some work) that is not interesting, boring day in and day life becomes uninteresting.
Provide each other an environment to grow , do things of ones choice and just see how the garden of life becomes colourful and blooms in no time.
Parents should see to it that rules are the same for a daughter and son, same for daughter and daughter-in-law, son and son- in-law, wife’s parents as one’s own parents for a husband & husband’s parents as ones own for a wife.
When such an amicable scenario exists where everyone will be able to do what one yearns for the intention behind every action would be beautiful in thoughts too and the world will be a lovely place to be.
