Over time I have discovered there is no absolute finish line for everyone in the race of life. Our tracks and durations are different. The only thing we have in common is the same empire. For instance, one person may graduate at the age 20 and will struggle for another 5 years to get a job.
Another might graduate at 25 and may get a job immediately. One can marry a virgin and wait for the next decade to have the blessings of children, another may have had series of abortions in her past but will become a mother almost immediately after marriage.
A fellow may become an MD at 38 and die at 56. Another may become MD at 55 and live to be 90.
What a life! Life is full of twists, turns, ups and downs, many surprises and disappointments. Life offers each one of us different opportunities and once an opportunity is lost, it’s gone forever.
It is up to each one of us to patiently prepare, wait, recognize and utilize every opportunity. We learn on the way. No one knows it all or has it better.
