Knowing your priorities is extremely important. Wouldn't it be nice if we could have everything we wanted? Wouldn't it be nice to not pick and choose based on our limitations? Well, that's not reality and that kind of thinking could get one into a lot of trouble. When you lose site of your priorities, you can lose wisdom in your decisions. Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. Reel it back and remind yourself of your priorities and then the decision presents itself.
In this season of my life, my son is my first priority. He is my purpose during this time in my life and my energies are directed toward him. We will make summer memories. We will have fun together. We will remember these days and I will regret nothing. In 8 short years he'll be off to college and I'll have all the time in the world to redirect my energies to my next purpose in a new season. But, I'm not rushing it. So, let's splash some more, let's linger in the pool, let's play and remember these days before they melt away like ice cream in a cone.
What do you consider your number one priority?
