Article -> What Really Matters

Date Added: July 2019

As long as our lives may be, they are also very short in the essence of time. How often do we take a step back to reflect on what really matters most?

We focus on work, family, and other daily task such as laundry, meals and yardwork. We drive our children from event to event. We work nights and weekends to get ahead. In the end, does this matter?

It matters to be a good parent, spouse and co-worker; although at what expense? We ignore our health because we take it for granted until something goes wrong. We take our families for granted, always assuming they will be there.

Story after story tells us that in the end, people never discuss how much money they have, how nice their home is, or what kind of car they drive. They discuss their loved ones, or they express regrets about not forgiving someone or not communicating how much someone meant to them.

Living a life that matters is a choice. Prioritize what really matters before it is too late. What hopes and dreams do you have for yourself? For me, it is faith (my relationship with God), family (my relationship with my wife), and others (coaching and mentoring young adults and international humanitarian work).

I am not a fan of the term legacy because I find it self-serving, especially people who proactively seek to leave a legacy. However, if you live your life based on certain values, hopes and dreams; your legacy should take care of itself.

Mine is simple. Leave Earth a better place for what I have done and who I have been, accomplished through my relationships with my God, my wife and others. What really matters to you?
