I attended a funeral yesterday. The family is mourning the loss of their loved ones that were taken way too early. Their entire world was flipped upside down in a moment.
It was a reminder for me. A reminder that the most important things in life we already have. We tend to focus on the future. It is so easy to think about the things that we don’t have. We live in an incredible time with more to be thankful for than any generation in the past, yet we still focus on what we dont have.
There is nothing wrong with ambition. We should strive to make ourselves and the world around us better. But let’s not miss the most important things that we have in our life already.
Let’s be grateful and cherish the most important things that we already have. Chances are they are actually way more important to us than all the other stuff we think we want in the future.
