I wanted to share with you one of the most important lessons that I have learned in my life and I learned it from my Dad.
The interesting thing is, I actually learned it not from his life, but from his (early) death.
At his wake and funeral, what I realized by all the people who’s lives where touched by his and what they shared with me, was that at the end of the day, the most important thing about our life comes down to our RELATIONSHIPS – the quality and quantity of them and the meaning and FEELING they give to our lives and all we do.
My Dad’s death taught me about the critical, yet all-to-often unappreciated, value of the human connection among us, and that all that really matters and gives things meaning and value in our lives can be reduced to the time and experiences we share with others.
Friend, are you LIVING YOUR VALUES?
Are your daily actions lining up with what you say is important to you?
You most likely feel, as I do, that the people you care about, and love and family are the most important thing, but are you really prioritizing these things in your life and showing up 100% for them?
You’ll know when you ARE living your values because your life not only gets more fun and enjoyable but a heck of a lot easier too!
And if not, you’ll continue to feel like a victim – with no power to change what’s going on “out there” or to change what “happened to” you, and that life is “doing you”, and so you will continue to feel frustrated, overwhelmed and stressed….and like it’s a perpetual Ground Hog Day! UGH
I know all about this because for years this was ME!
I’m so grateful that I have my Dad’s final words in my heart to always remind me and bring me home to the truth – and now I hope they can help you too 🙂
