What Really Matters
May 6, 2020
It's funny how things can change quickly and unexpectedly.
One minute, things are going along pretty well, and then wham! Out of no-where, you are dealing with a completely new normal and have lost what little control you used to have.
Issues, disagreements, and problems that used to seem like a big deal, are not so important anymore.
When I get stressed out, I look inward and turn it into an opportunity to focus on what really matters in life. For me, these revolve around:
● Health, all the material possessions in the world don’t matter if you don’t have this
● Having basic needs met such as food and shelter
● Family, this being our unbreakable circle of strength and unconditional love
● Understanding the difference between wants and needs and using the discussion to educate the next generation in this area
● Reducing our impact on the earth, by reusing, recycling, and reducing to make the environment healthier for us and the future generations
● Friends and community, as both of these, boost happiness and create a sense of belonging
● Helping others and addressing inequality, this is the only true way to make the world a better place and provides a great sense of purpose.
We all have different hopes and dreams as well as different goals and ambitions. But at the end of the day, we can’t afford to lose sight of what matters most in life and remember that we are all in this together.
