I MAKE IT; I MAR IT!

Three friends retired from their respective jobs in certain short intervals of time and were busy in their own future plans.
  • “I worked for 35 years and had given the maximum to my family in terms of my monies, time and energies. Now it's time for me to rest and let the family members take care of all that required. I‘ll play with the Little Ones around me and spend my time peacefully with my family helping them out here and there!”
Thus thought one gentleman and having decided in that way he continued to be at home in a relaxing mood after the cessation of his employment. Anyhow the Saying goes,

'Freedom is my birth right!'

But equally too the Saying goes..

'Familiarity breeds contempt!'

As all human relations have their own boundaries. The gentleman’s case was no exception there, soon there were misunderstandings in the joint family, all found him one way or the other pampering the Littles Ones beyond staying as an obstacle in their busy life and a few comments were straight away hurled at him that consuming was actively going on without the required effort.

And the friends and well-wishers around him advised him saying that at his age 'Keeping calm everywhere' is the best attitude in life!
  • “I have worked so many years and picked up a great experience. My Company might have retired me routinely but by God’s Grace, still my energies are intact. Being in a fit condition, there's no point in doing small jobs here and there. I’ll take up an active work where my requirement exists and start earning decent monies again.. Beyond I'll be interacting with the Little Ones around me where possible helping the family members here and there where my time permits!” 
Thus thought the second one and having decided in that way instantly got into a hectic job along with other activities by the side. Anyhow, the Saying goes..

'No pains, no gains!'

But equally too the Saying goes..

‘Look before you leap!’

Thus the gentleman continued to be more active than permitted for his age, soon the hectic physical movements had their toll on his body and he was advised to rest for a long time and further beyond without a say.

And the friends and well-wishers around him consoled him saying that at his age 'Slowing down everywhere' is the best attitude in life!
  • “I am retired means my capacities are reasonably down but that is not the end to all the exertions as the body maintenance must go on and on till the limbs move to the last second! Here self help alone is the best help which truly gets back the respect needed in life. 
  • Let me continue doing all my basic works myself and in addition, work out a few moderate plans for the family members. Beyond let me actively interact with the Little Ones around me where exactly they need my presence and thus be helpful and supportive to the family members in their take care by doing certain specific side works for which they do not find time. At the same time let me if possible devote part of my time for continuation of my profession for an honorarium. 
  • Let rest of the time go in thoughts of God and let this life move further in that way alone!”
Thus thought the third gentleman and having decided in that way he straight started living that life.. Anyhow, the Saying goes..

'Where there is a will there is a way!'

And equally too the Saying goes..

'Truth alone Triumphs!'

Strangely, the last one alone could reasonably do what he wished for and none commented on, criticized or worked against his decisions.

And the friends and well-wishers around him commended him saying that at his age, 'Being Moderate everywhere' is the best attitude in life!
