Today’s message is again one of a more serious nature. I attended a memorial service this weekend for a friend. When someone close to us dies, especially when that death is unexpected, when they pass a lot earlier in life than what is normal, it brings up a lot of stuff.
Not only grief and sadness of course, but it also shines a light on things within ourselves. We reflect on what our lives mean and also what is important to us. What in our lives do we need to change or refocus on?
Today I want to pose this question to you:
Are you spending your time on what you truly think is important in your life?
I know for me and a lot of my clients, we’ve talked about how we can get focused on things because, yes, they’re necessary — things like money or work.
But sometimes we put all the focus on that, when we want to balance our focus:
-Relationships in our life
-Time to play and do things we enjoy
-Time to rest and to just be
All of these things are within our control and keep us healthy and living longer.
Today I want you to look at the balance in your life, what’s important to you and where you’re truly putting your time. Are you spending a lot of time and energy on working, on doing or on worrying about things that aren’t really that important to you?
I know for me I have a tendency to be a workaholic. I love what I do. It is one of my passions. But I have to be careful because it can also be a curse. It’s a double-edge sword. So when my friend passed, I got to look at and reflect on my balance and see that I was putting too much time into work and focusing on money.
I needed to shift and reflect and find more balance in my life and make more time for friends, family, loved ones and for myself — playing and resting — because I had been working way too hard.
I would like you to take some time to think about that in the next few days and weeks. It’s a good idea to make it a habit to reflect on this regularly so that you don’t wait until the big things knock you back and force you to focus. They don’t happen often, hopefully, for most of us.
