Life is the world’s most underrated journey that has everything we expect from travel. People want to travel the world without realizing their life in itself is a new world. There are checkpoints, milestones, opportunities, unpredictability, and so much more associated with life.
However, we all still want to get inside the other side of life where we complain about things we lose, material happiness, and so on and so forth. Although none of us including me have ever thought beyond material happiness, it is the truth of life.
