If you missed the podcast I did Monday, I was talking about how important it is to know your worth. You can check it out here.
Since the world is opening back up and we are getting adjusted to this “new normal” my friends and I decided to go to brunch and celebrate our accomplishments. One of my friends is a travel nurse who has been putting her life on the line since Covid traveling to places like California, Texas and other places helping with the crisis.
Another friend has taking her Zumba business to the next level where she now is focusing not only on moving the body but also teaching her students how to eat healthy and stay healthy. I’m telling you; this pandemic has really opened a lot of people eyes as to what’s important in life.
As you can see from the pictures, we were having a ball. My crazy self was so excited I was all over the place (yes, I’m the shortest one).
We waited for 2 hours to eat and when we sat down, we started talking and one of the questions that came up was “What’s the one thing in life you’re so happy you did?” Not thinking I said “Live!” others said “get healthy, be happy, etc..” As I was listening, it occurred to me that nobody was talking about material things like money, house, cars etc. Everyone was so happy to just be alive and to be in good health. Some were showing pictures of their grandchildren and talking about how funny it is to see their kids be parents.
I wasn’t shocked at all because what we know for sure as we get older life starts to look a little different. All those things we thought we wanted when we were younger, we figured out means nothing if we don’t have the basics. Our priorities and desires are different.
We were reminiscing talking about how far we’ve come and what the future holds. When I got home, I wrote in my journal thanking God for the growth. I know I would have never arrived at this point without going through everything I went through.
What’s the one thing in life you’re so happy you did? What makes you sit back and say “Damn, that was the best decision I ever made?” Let me know. I would love to hear.
P.S. Can you do me a favor? I’ll be coming to a city near you this summer but need a little help. Can you fill out this short form for me? If you have already done so, thank you.
