Last week my grandfather died. He’s the first person in my family, who I knew well, who has passed on, and it’s gotten me to thinking. There were a lot of nice things said at his funeral. We his family know that he wasn’t perfect, but he sure was loved.
Makes me think again how important it is to keep important things at the top of our priority lists. You know? The art of balance, mentioned in a previous post, might be one of the most important disciplines we can develop. If we get that one right, our time will be managed well enough that we can work on other skills and disciplines and relationships.
No matter what happens to me, I have a choice. Life is like a series of crossroads, and although many things can happen to me that I have no control over, I ALWAYS can choose how I respond to it.
I loved Choose Your Own Adventure books. Now I’m thinking how all of life is kind of like that. I can choose my own adventure.
Oh, and the crossroads are much easier if you share them. Family and friends are perfect!
