Two Brothers

There were once Two brothers who lived on the 80th level. On coming home one day, they realized to their dismay that the lifts were not working and that they have to climb the stairs home. After struggling to the 20th level, panting and tired, they decided to abandon their bags and come back for them the next day. They left their bags then and climbed on.
When they have struggled to the 40th level, the younger brother started
to grumble and both of them began to quarrel. They continued to climb
the flights of steps, quarreling all the way to the 60th floor. They
then realized that they have only 20 levels more to climb and decided
to stop quarreling and continue climbing in peace. They silently
climbed on and reached their home at long last. Each stood calmly
before the door and waited for the other to open the door. And they
realized that the key was in their bags which was left on the 20th
This story is reflecting on our life...many of us live under the
expectations of our parents, teachers and friends when young. We seldom
get to do the things that we really like and love and are under so much
pressure and stress so that by the age of 20, we get tired and decided
to dump this load. Being free of the stress and pressure, we work
enthusiastically and dream ambitious wishes. But by the time we reach
40 years old, we start to lose our vision and dreams. We began to feel
unsatisfied and start to complain and criticize.
We live life as a misery as we are never satisfied. Reaching 60, we
realize that we have little left for complaining anymore, and we began
to walk the final episode in peace and calmness. We think that there is
nothing left to disappoint us, only to realize that we could not rest
in peace because we have an unfulfilled dream ...... a dream we
abandoned 60 years ago.
So what is your dream? Follow your dreams, so that you will not live
with regrets.
