“Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.”
Today’s topic touches on a subject i know many of us (myself included) might be guilty of. The act of how to priorities love from the most important things in our hearts has slowly faded away.
We tend to worry about our lives, the promotions at work, the best grade, the best outfits, money, the latest cars that we forget what really is important to us. Family, friends, God, Relatives and so on. We tend to get too sucked into the world that we almost live in a closed lonely box.
Social media has become a huge impact in making us so isolated that, real life, and real relationships to us are nothing but a vague memory. When was the last time you had a long and fun conversation with your parents? Went out with your friends and actually had a genuinely good and fun time? Not in the club or at night but an outing where you enjoy each other’s company…When was the last time you had a cook off/bake off, with your siblings/best friend in the kitchen?
How many of those questions can we answer positively?
You see we are all growing older and i understand the fact that we all are getting busier trying to make our lives better by the day, but on that last day, where you will be in hospital, old and tired, would you be satisfied with your phone, your money or your car being there for you? Or would you rather have friends, family surrounding you.
I have a next door neighbour, who has the biggest mansion in our area/estate, he owns a rolls royce, a mercedes and a motorcycle (one of these fancy ones) but has never established a family. He called me one day and said: “Dear, i would give everything to have the happiness you and your family share, everything to have kids around like you all have, but i neglected every opportunity i had, because i was too busy. Now i am alone with no one to share it all with. Don’t ever lose that” (He is 62 years old)
Nothing is wrong with being ambitious and working hard, getting all you want in life but do not forget to have a balance in life. Creating a balance between your ambitions and what you really need in life.
The people who know how to create this balance are the happiest, they have what they want and what they need, there is nothing more to life than achieving that!
I was watching something (link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqGRnlXplx0) the other day and this is what i learnt: If you prioritise the non-important things in life first, you won’t have any time for the most important things in life, but the moment you get the most important things in place, everything else will perfectly find its place in your life.
This month is the perfect time to start changing your priorities. As we all are getting ready for the festivities, it would be an amazing idea to go see your parents/grandparents/other relatives, or even go visit a childhood friend and carry a gift with you, but as long as you and they are alive and kicking, it’s never too late to start over.
So as you do this, remember, do not prioritise what’s on your schedule, but schedule your priorities!

Oh and happy holidays to everyone!
