It is often easy to forget what things really matter in life. Every day we are bombarded by new information, distractions, the come and go of our day and what needs to be done. My husband says I’m not a very good ‘mental multitasker’ when it comes to life. If there are things going on around me it is difficult to be “in the moment” of my day without being concerned about the house, my blog, preparations for back to school or what is for dinner. All of these things seem so important at the time and it isn’t until I look back that I realize it really wasn’t. What was important was right in front me, that moment I was missing. Dishes could be done at any time, my blog wasn’t going anywhere, there is 2 weeks left before school starts and it wouldn’t matter if we all just ate ramen noodles – that moment wasn’t coming back.
The greatest good you could offer the world around you is you.
I love this video about the Golden Grad who spent her life taking care of what was most important to her – her family. She put her children through school, then watched her grandchildren go to school and then after working all her life she went back to school and at 95 and she graduated. She gave the greatest gift to the people she loved, her time. She is the proof that you are never too old to follow your dreams, your goals or aspirations.
Today I encourage you to take a moment and be there. Strive to live your life rather than be a part of it. This is how I make the years count. This is how I keep the good going in my life.
