Values, Priorities, Passion….
We talk about them, but do we do them?
Maybe you are like me and you like to concentrate on the big ways in which we can follow our values, priorities, and passions. You like to knock’em dead in one fell swoop.
Unfortunately, things don’t always work that way.
As cliche as it is, the little things really do count…
Now I normally am very vague talking about my personal life. I normally give a vague picture of what I am going through to make a point for an article. I give just enough to highlight a rather general experience most people have and turn it around to give you an insight that might be helpful in your own life. If not completely brilliant and life changing, it might be just the helpful reminder you need to live a better life in that area.
Well this time I will give you the specific instance.
Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday. I live pretty far away from my parents currently. Something sent in the mail usually takes three days to get there.
I kept procrastinating on it and never got to the store to get her a Mother’s Day card. (p.s. She probably will read this, and be sad, but I have other plans that I believe will brighten her day anyway.)
I always thought tomorrow I would have time to get to the store so I choose not to do it today.
If I can convey any wisdom through my writing it is this…
Sometimes you won’t have time, you have to make time. You think you will have time, but you won’t. The time you thought you had may be taken away from you. And time is our most precious gift by far.
At least for this weekend, make sure you make time for your mom. And in the future make as much time for your loved ones as you can.
Happy Mother’s Day!
