Knowing one's priorities is one of the most important things in life - at least in my mind. This implies that you have an overall goal in your life, which will help you set your priorities straight. Without this goal, you will end up floating around, the wind taking you where it blows. If you do not have your priorities straight, you will be turning this way and that, with no direction in life.
Not everyone has this straight - certainly not me. But there are things that I know are important in my life: my husband, my family, my faith, and my job. Sometimes I think that I get my priorities all muddled up - especially when I got married. Sometimes I feel that I have to choose between priorities. Is there no way around this?
Are there any absolutes when it comes to your priorities in life? Sometimes I think not. They could change according to the circumstances. But at the end of the day, you have to know who or what is most important to you. More than knowing and saying, though, I believe that you have to act in such as way as to show where your priorities lie.
I know I am being vague in a sense. Thoughts are speeding through my mind. I want to express them, I need to let them out. Yet there are some things that are too scary to see in black and white. There are some things that you need to figure out for yourself. There comes a time when you have to figure out your priorities and stand by them. It's either that or fool yourself and the others around you.
