You are in pursuit of success. You are inspired and motivated. Every day, you get closer, and closer to your goals. Your goal may be to be finance or business related. They may be something else entirely. All of us want to feel important, or appreciated. We want the world to see how great we are. These things aren’t bad. In fact, it’s good to strive for success. The one thing I hope none of us forget is our families.
Some of us have very traditional, nuclear families. In my family, I am the mom. I’m married to my husband, and I have 2… almost 3 kids. (April is gonna be an exciting month!) These are the people that I care about most. It doesn’t have to look like this though. The most important thing, is that we have people in our lives that we love, and those people love us back.
Who is in your family? They may be blood-related, they may not. Think about those people who you wouldn’t want to live without. This is your family, and any pursuit of success in other areas should never get in the way of those relationships.
Today was a special day in our family. It was my son’s birthday. He turned two today, and the whole day was his. We played, ate chocolate cake, and did all of the things he loves best. My sweet two-year-old, is one of the most important people in my life, and I wanted to show it, but it meant that I put all of my business-related things on the back-burner. I realized that I had no idea what was going to go on the blog today, but that it was OK. Some days are family days, and family is always more important than any other kind of success. My family is my first priority, and that is the way it should be.
