What Matters Most!
Updated: May 19
Sometimes you have to look back in order to go forward. In our fast paced society, it is so easy to fill our days with busyness! To start this "Journey of 52 Weeks", I decided to dust off the photo albums and spend some time reflecting on the first 50 years. Look at life as a road map... Where have you been? Who has been in your life? Look at the happy, challenging and sad times. I have always believed that things happen for a reason. All of our experiences end up being gifts of life. Those gifts are not meant to be ignored, but embraced.
As I looked through the pictures that have made up my life, I found myself wanting to reconnect with others and I had a strong sense of community. During this first week, I took the time to reach out to others with cards of encouragement, friendship and sadly, cards of sympathy.
Our lives are where they are supposed to be for the moment. I enjoyed spending time looking at the sweet faces of our three children as they transitioned from babies to toddlers, children to young adults. I savor these photos and I will look to the future and the possibilities for new experiences of life shared with family and friends. What Matters Most? The people within our lives and how we treat them! Week #1: Pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea, close out the outside world and look at the journey of life in your pictures.
