When faced with priorities, time management is important. Juggling work and family is a delicate balance.
Time with family always wins. I have no second guessing when it comes to my family. They are the reason for my being, they represent everything I hold dear.
It was no contest. So it didn’t matter to me when I had to let my work slide for a few days, because my family was in town. I knew that work would still be there when I returned, but family was in for a visit.
There are times in life when we must make a choice and sometimes we will disappoint others.
In reflection we reconsider, was I right in choosing to do this instead of that? We waste no time at all second guessing the choices we made in the past.
I have found not to take things for granted. At work, we can be replaced. Our jobs can be eliminated and life shouldn’t revolve around our careers.
At home we find comfort. With family we can be ourselves. We can laugh, we can cry, and we can enjoy the company of others. Time with family is one of the most valuable gifts we could receive.
There is no second guessing the fragility of life. Appreciating the things this life has to offer and family is top on my list.
I am grateful that I chose to spend time with my family. The lasting memories have been captured forever in my mind.
”We never know how high we are
Till we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies.”
— Emily Dickinson
