“Good things happen when you get your priorities straight.” – Scott Caan
Life is all about making choices. Our time here is precious and what we spend it on should be the things that matter most. It’s often helpful to take stock of our lives and see if our priorities need to be re-evaluated.
But more important, the choices we make mean the most – and lead us to doing, living and believing in what really matters.
The choice to forgive – It’s not always easy to forgive, but it’s always right. Letting go of anger and bitterness is much more important than staying upset. It will free your heart and soul and give you room to love more.
Spending time with our children – Our children’s well-being and happiness is the most important thing we can invest in. It’s easy to get wrapped up in responsibilities, but at the end of the day, family is what matters the most.
Loving ourselves – Self-love comes a lot harder for some people than others, but it’s important to put this on our priority list. It’s not about vanity, it’s about appreciating yourself, knowing your strengths and capabilities, and keeping a positive outlook about what you’re doing.
Doing things that we love – Passions and hobbies are more than just an interest we have in our spare time. They should be a priority because they make our other responsibilities easier to bear. The special things we hold dear to our heart provide an outlet for our energy and stress, as well as a door for inspiration and insight.
Meaningful friendships – The gift of friendship is a beautiful one to cherish. No matter what goes on in life, choosing to put your friends on your priority list is a decision you won’t regret. Having close friends means that you never have to walk the road alone.
