My Father Told Me

Dear Friends,

Once my brothers and I discussed a sensitive topic that caused us to worry about our children in the future. Our father interrupted our discussion. Eyes filled with anger, he looked at me and said, "Why do you care about them? Focus on what you want." I tried to convince him that it would affect our children's lives, but he replied, "I know you. You will go in deep to study that topic. Focus on what you want." Later, I thought about staying focused on what I wanted; I agree with my father that the outside world is so distracted and confused due to social media. Therefore, we weaken ourselves and our abilities to achieve our goals. What will happen to us if we do not work on developing ourselves?

It's a reminder for you and me to stay focused on what we want and wish you a happy new year filled with new beginnings.

Take care.
