Sorry about the late post, under the weather, yet again! It's been a shaky start to the new year, but I'm sure things are headed in the right direction.
I read an interesting story that was shared on my Facebook page which inspired this week's post. Here is the link www.tinylever.com/professor-beer-golf-balls-sand-facebook-story
Remember the golf balls because when all the sand and pebbles are gone, all you are left with are the golf balls!
Make a promise to yourself for this year and from now on that no matter how stressed your life gets with the small stuff, that you don't forget what's important in your life, your family, your friends, and your health!
How many times have we done this and how many times have we promised ourselves that we will remember who and what matters most and brush aside the trivial things in life? I know I have, many times, and something always happens at the right time in our lives to take stock of what really matters! Like a sudden death in the family, an unexpected illness or expected broken marriage!
When these things occur without our control, we stop and reflect...
Forget the stress of your job, leave it at work and deal with it tomorrow! No job is worth it!
Spend time with your children, laugh with them daily and always remind them how much they mean to you. Never go to bed upset with anyone who matters. You never know what tomorrow brings!
Bake cookies for your grandmother, your uncle, and spend some time listening to stories of the "good old days." I never get tired of those stories, but lately I haven't made time for the ones who mean the most to me! Call them on the phone and tell them you are thinking about them and miss them dearly!
Put the golf balls first and let the sand and pebbles wash away with the tide...
A true measure of happiness and self-worth is what we are all looking for...
Guess what? It's right in front of you...
Love passionately, laugh daily, live life to the fullest, and most of all...
Eat, drink, and be merry with those who you hold closest to your heart!
