So I asked myself if there is a point in life where people get so busy to the point they don’t have time for their friends, their family, their spouse and kids or maybe they don’t have time for themselves. Being busy is fine, it’s really okay, in fact there comes a time in life where you busy that you don’t really get why. But the Big Q is, what are you busy doing? What are you busy with?
Ever met a family that has everyone doing something important FOR THE FAMILY? Most of us are busy doing things for ourselves, that benefit us NOW and maybe not in the future. Like boy! What exactly are you doing? One thing we should all learn is that it “isn’t enough to be just Busy, But Busy WITH WHAT?”
There is this large family (call it the Antison Family) everyone in it has a role to play, and it is what they focus on for the rest of their lives. We are like that, right? Humans I mean. Take for instance an African Lady who is raised acknowledging the fact that she is the one who is always supposed to be in the kitchen. I know (rolling my eyes) modern world isn’t like that,(someone would say) we both have to share the chores, blah blah blah. In real sense, who is really always in the Kitchen at least 3/4 the time?
Anyway, this family is focused and has carried this ritual always to the next generations in their lineage. Their Motto is: “It’s Either Success OR Success”. No other option, whatever it takes they have to succeed. Picture an empire that is trying to secure its territory and its name, wouldn’t it do anything to retain all that. Even if it means that half of its soldiers get hurt or killed, main focus to them is to succeed, retaining their image.
The Antisons rely mostly on its members’ strength. In a set up family a man is the provider of basically everything, he is the bread winner. However, the rest of the family members take part in their responsibility, only that this time it varies from sharing almost everything to boost the family. I would say the same for them, but like I said, focused on their main agenda.Governance always strikes in any kind of a family, which determines the survival of the family all through. For the Antisons’ we’ll call theirs as Monarchy governance, which has been accepted for centuries.
Her majesty has the key to the future, that means she needs to be always on her right mind, am talking about; stress free, on a balanced diet, protected, entertained, name it. Her circle, has Troopers, it has Parlors, and ‘Chaperones’, all that are obliged to do what they are called for(which is establishing the next generations). Interestingly, the parlors are the male ones who have a robust muscular body-build character, they work as thrice as much as their body weights. For them, they not only work for everyone in the family but for Her majesty, they would also divide themselves according to whom would forage for food, while others who would be architects and constructors of beautiful homes, others would keep watch of the broods.
The troopers are the females who are sterile, and have more built bodies than the parlors; they give back to the family by ensuring that it is protected. Now, ever seen a family where it is intertwined by troopers chipping in what the parlors do, take an instance of the old days where by in a farm, they would be provided with machines to do hard work while the workers would do the slightly hard ones. Same in this family, The Troopers, would crack open the hard seeds for the parlors to have an easy time carrying them back home and storing them. They also clear the bushes for the parlors to pass through easily.
The Princess acts as the unfertilized queen, waiting to take in place when the right time comes. The interesting part is that they always take care of themselves, no parlors, or troopers taking care of her. Being responsible she has to start with herself before being enthrone into the kingdom. The ‘Chaperons’ have only one purpose, fertilizing the queen, once the mission is accomplished they rest in peace. In the Antison family you would find the ‘Chaperons’ to be recruited more often compared to the parlors and troopers.
Their Mansions are the ones found anywhere in the world, they don’t get to be completed at times since they are destroyed before the unique hand is completed. Their ideas seem unique and I tend to believe that they are all wired into where to have an opening, not all are leveled but just in the right way. When they travel to get the materials they all travel together in same sequence with a mission to accomplish. For them they understand nature and what it’s like to have union and work hard as a team.
I like comparing them to an animal that we all know is the strongest and feared by the King of the jungle as well. The Ant compared to an elephant is a no match. Ants are hardworking have a responsibilities to their government and homes as well, they are dedicated to be part of a life that makes a success worthwhile not only to their generation but also to their futures.
This is a story of the Ant having the strength to keep on. Being Busy for the purpose of Success.
