The speed of life is an interesting phenomenon. The older you get the swifter it passes by. I have always found it interesting to see what emphasis people place on certain things in their life. I don't judge somebody for something or someone that they find especially important to spend their time with. I do find it rather interesting when people occupy their time on things that yield absolutely no return on the investment made.
I would ask you to contemplate the things and interests that occupy your time. While you're thinking I ask this of you: Does your spouse or children find place in your particular interests? Remember, that when life comes to a close the things that you will think the most about will be the things that deal with the family. I can't imagine that I will ever wonder why I didn't spend more time at work. Or was my interest of such import that I may have sacrificed quality time with those who matter the most to me.
I'm not suggesting that interests are not important, I am hoping that those do not overshadow what is of significant worth in the end.
I find myself wondering and hoping that what I spend my time doing is of benefit to those who I have personal stewardship over and that will make the most difference.
Life is the training course that will help determine who I really am. I want to pass successfully.
