Have you ever had an experience that changes your perspective? I did last week and I wanted to share it with you.
I’ve been so busy lately with family and church obligations that I’ve only had sporadic time for writing. But I decided to make a plan to outline and start a new project I’ve been eager about. I was starting on Wednesday and I was so excited.
I got up early (which is a miracle for me) and I was all ready to go by the time my kids left for school, then I got a call asking if I could help a friend because her 4 year old was in the hospital ICU.
This simple thing changed everything for me. I love to write, but there are things more important than writing. If we push off those important things like time with family and helping friends we lose a great opportunity to grow.
Writing is important to me. But sometimes it takes perspective to pull back on blogging, writing, reading, social media and forwarding our careers to do the things that really matter. I want to do what is TRULY important—nothing else really matters.
