*NOT* a writing-related post.
Too often in life, we get caught up in the day-to-day. Work has a way of taking over your life, the kids always have somewhere to be, the housework is on a never-ending cycle of required work to do. But it is important to keep your priorities right.
If you have kids, they need some family time with you – not in front of the TV but real, interactive time. Talk over dinner. Go on hikes with them. Have a game night. If they are grown and out of the house, call them.
If you have parents, give them a call. Stop by and talk when you can. Take them to dinner.
Life is fleeting. You never have as much time as think you do. The ‘Things’ in your life are not what matter, it’s the people. If you have an issue with a member of your family, talk it through with them, if possible. Don’t give them the cold shoulder. You wouldn’t want that to be the way things ended, would you? Family is everything.
