Maintain balance of spiritual, material

How should we spend our life? There is no definite answer, but I have some ideas I would like to share with you.


Yes, life is certainly blank and bland if we are foolish enough to focus on the materialistic world and forget our spiritual needs.


I believe sometimes we are bound by the realistic world and things just don't always go the way we desire. As a student I understand it's sometimes stupid to study what we do not really like or are not willing to do, but can we ignore study just because it is not 'what we like to do'?


It is what we have to do. We must strike a balance between our spiritual world and physical necessities. Neither should be ignored nor should we be one-sided.


So, what is the point of our dreams? I believe we are all unique and have different opinions about various matters; what we want to achieve in our lives is also different.


Right now, living without regret is the central aim of my life. It's what I am striving for, and I hope I can follow this principle in the future.
