Important?

What is important to you today? You know precisely what is important in your life and you could easily recite a list of those things that are most important to you. Family, God, character, the list is individual and extensive. These are the things that are your foundation, near and dear to your heart. They are essentially who you are.

‚Äč But what is important to you today? Are your most important items important today? Or is the news, the amount you slept, who did what to who, getting through another week, chores, to do lists, are these what is important today?

Every moment of every day you can focus on your highest thoughts or your lowest. You can focus on your blessings, your gratitude for all that has sustained you through good times and bad or you can focus on the mundane, the transitory.

When you put your head on your pillow tonight, the choices you made this day will become quite clear. You will rest with a mind that is at ease and a smile on your lips or you will let the trivialities that you focused on this day pester you all night.

Let whatever is important to you be important not just in moments of reflection but in every conscious moment. Let those things that define your life be the focus of your life. Live for that which elevates you and you truly live. You will never regret choosing a better thought.
