Q. Dear Oracle,

Many thoughts crossed my mind during my Coldplayathon (a.k.a. Listening to the full discography of Coldplay in one go)

And here is a thought that kept crossing my mind and I was wondering what is your input on it:

What is more important in life? To do whatever it takes to chase your dreams and ambitions, or to stick to friends and family and be contented with what you have?


The Oracle replies:

Er... why can't you do both? Why can't we have it all? Chase your dreams / fulfill your ambitions with your family & friends around you and all enjoy the benefits together. By benefits I do not necessarily mean financial gains - I mean the rewards you feel in that contentment.
