THIS is What’s Really Important

This weekend was a tough one.  We’ve come through a health scare with my beloved father-in-law unscathed, although not entirely out of the woods, and it’s put life back into perspective.  Why does it take some bad to make you appreciate the good?  Why does the good get taken for granted?  And why did I need to be reminded of what’s really important?

This is what’s really important:

  • Smiles and laughter.
  • Sunrises and sunsets.
  • New experiences and familiar knowledge.
  • Learning and growing.
  • Travelling and wandering.
  • Feeling pride and believing in hope.
  • Exploring dreams and chasing goals.
  • Family.
  • Health.
  • Time.

I’d love to hear your ‘this’.

THIS is what's important.

THIS is what’s really important.

    So true Ashley. It’s sad that terrible things help us put life back into perspective. Hope everyone’s ok – I’ll keep your family in my thoughts xox

    • Thanks so much Lisa! He is doing really well, we are going to get through this all okay- it’s so important to count our blessings. I think of your family often too, and hope things are going well.

    My kids have recently lost two very close, young people. I think everyday how precious my kids are to me…about their friends how much I loved them and all the people that you meet everyday. This life now, don’t wait for things to happen, it only happens once, enjoy the finer things. Love, kindness and compassion:)
