Here goes the saying ' Time and tide waits for no man' and indeed very true, time lost is never regained.  In the midst of all this, we find people fighting for very menial reasons, even going to the extent of killing.  We keep talking about our childhood days and how carefree we were.  It need not  only be a happy childhood but the further years too can be made happy by oneself if she or he wants.

Time is  a healer for most of our actions and consequences.  I used to think that I cannot live in this world without my mother, but then she is gone for almost 10 years now and I am still moving on with my life. How strange!!!!!!!!!!  With our biological family,  we enjoy a lifestyle sharing and caring.  After sometime, get married and move into another lifestyle.  Although difficult to cope up with, in the beginning, finally we get into the groove somehow.  Time does not wait for anyone.  It keeps telling that the faster one is in the track, better for her.  The first five years of marriage flies away in adjustments and learning new things.  The next twenty years, one is very very busy with the family, children and job (if the lady is working).  By the time one realises how far she has travelled during the years, almost half of one's life has disappeared. 

Now, creeps the eerie feeling of old age stepping in.  You suddenly pay more attention to exercises, food habits, low fat eats etc etc. Bhagwad Gita rightly points out that 'Whatever taken from here is for you to leave back, why fret and fume for earthly things which belongs to you today would eventually belong to someone tomorrow'.  If one realises the intensity of the above words, less would be enmity and greediness.  If the essence of Gita  is thoroughly understood, one would not become materialistically attached to worldly things,  which are just temporary.

Let us learn to enjoy each day in the same flow as it comes for each new day is a gift from God.
