Priorities

I removed some things from my life recently.  It wasn’t an easy decision, and it wasn’t a completely rational one, either.  Or, at least, it may not have seemed it from an outside perspective.  The truth is, in a rare moment of clarity I understood no matter what is going on with this particular situation, none of it will ever be as important as my family or my true friends.  If you sit back and think of the many things taking up time and energy in you life, I’m sure a majority of those worries and tasks are meaningless when weighed against the importance of your family.  I know I’ve made some people angry with my decision, but my true friends understand, and my family supports me unconditionally.  (And my husband would be happy to hear the end of it! 🙂 )

Sometimes the seemingly bad decisions we make lead us back to the path we were meant to be on.  The experiences we collect along the way, good and bad, help focus us on what is and is not important. There are no mistakes.  Everything we’ve done past, present and future, is meant to be.  Sometimes it’s hard to remember that in the midst of a conflict, but it’s true. In the grand scheme of things, we are all on this Earth for a minuscule amount of time.  I would like to spend my time here enjoying the company of those I love, and loving those that are my company.  From this moment on, I refuse to spend another moment dwelling on the negative!  Since I’m human, I recognize this is impossible, but I’m willing to give it a genuine try!  From this moment forward, I forgive and I forget.  (I can’t guarantee, though, that my sistah from another mistah feels the same way. 😉 )
