priorities and perceptions change
Thursday, December 15, 2011
I have had a few bad days - so I have been reflecting on how my priorities have changed as well as my perception of things.
One of my children pointed out to me that - what she thought was REAL as kid - she has since discovered that as an adult she realizes that her perception as a child was totaly different from today at 27. doh.. I have been trying to teach my four kids this since like forever.. doh! Well three of the four isnt bad right? right!
I am letting go of the little things and really trying to be thankful for what I do have. I no longer want to think about what I could have or done differently. I just want to continue to move forward and let go of the things that I cannot change.
My priorities are my parents. If life goes according to God's plan - believe me I know that it does not always happen - I buried a baby, but if it goes according to the way He planned it, my children and grandchildren have more years left than my parents.
I do plan time with my kids and grandkids, but my parents supersede most everything else in this life at this time - other than my time with God. He is first and foremost in my every day life. Without Him I am just DUST.
My third priority is my health and working out, eating right, finding balance psychologically.
So God, Family and Health. What more could a person want?
