I love this quote from Robert Brault.
It describes life with children perfectly, not to mention daily life in general.
What really makes this life special?
It’s not the occasional trips or once-in-a-lifetime experiences…it’s the little things.
Those little things add up to what your life is.
I correlate that with:
- Do what you love, and love what you do.
- Spend time with those you love.
- Relax a bit.
- Take time to appreciate those things and people around you.
- Help others.
- Learn something new. You may discover a new passion.
- Think about what you really want and go after it. Make your dreams reality!
What do those things mean to me?
I don’t want to wake up one day and realize that all those little things I disliked became my life. I don’t want to spend all my time with things that I don’t value.
whatever you commit your time to will ultimately determine what your life represented.
So choose carefully.
This life passes faster than any of us realizes.
Ever find yourself in a negative pattern?
Where one thing goes wrong. Then suddenly everything takes a turn toward the bad?
I really believe that when you let yourself turn toward negative thoughts, your quality of life suffers.
Negativity cannot produce joy. And without joy, you cannot find long-term happiness.
So, when things take a negative turn, take a deep breath, refocus on something good.
Bad things happen. That’s a natural fact in this blemished world. But that doesn’t mean you cannot have a positive and happy life while here.
Was there ever a doubt? No…well, not really.
I mean, I believe He’ll take care of us, our needs. I guess the issue primarily lies in my working, my job(s) and my perspective of it.
Since I’m a single parent, I view my job as a necessity to survive. After all, without my income, I couldn’t afford our home, food, activities, etc. We’d be in a pretty difficult position. There isn’t anyone else I can rely on to care for us. It’s me or the street. That’s a very scary concept when I consider it’s not just me who would end up there.
So, what to do? Yes, I need to work, but maybe I need to be wiser about it all. Maybe I should pray for guidance. Let God tell me what is important and what needs to be let go of. I’m working to the point where I have little-to-no-time with friends, family, or God.
My priorities have gotten skewed. Time to straighten them out and get them back in the right order.
God. Family. Work.
That’s they way I’ve always wanted it – time to reset!
You with me? How can you reset your life?
