There are just somethings in life we can’t fully comprehend until we get there. As we are fortunate enough to be alive decade to decade our priorities should shift. Notice I said SHOULD.
I was thinking about how at one time in my life my career and entrepreneurial endeavors were thee most important thing in my world but as I’ve gotten older, the value of my actual life outside of work took its place.
There is nothing wrong with work ethic and I’m a huge advocate for being a good employee or employer. However, what you allow to be the things that weigh on your heart and mind on a daily basis should be the things that are completely irreplaceable . Sometimes we need to shift our priorities and put boundaries in place so that we do not end up having a list of regrets at the end of our lives.
Your time with your children can’t be replaced, they only grow once. The time with your loved ones only comes around once in a lifetime. Your relationship with God is what sustains you through good times and the inevitable hard times. So, I invite you to examine your priorities and make sure that you’re happy with the order of that list.
