Take a step back.
So much emphasis is placed on progress.
- I'm one of the most guilty ones!
- We stress the lessons, build the website, build the business.
- Write great content.
- Blog on WA
- Gotta do it...get it done.
Not a lot of posts on slowing down...
- Push the pause button!
- I have an Apple Watch. Every few minutes a pop up says...Breathe!
- We need a breathe button... a smell the roses button!
Yesterday I was shaken to my core. A dear friend, that most of us know, Carson2, sent us a blog that he lost his daughter. Most of us were kind and sent him a sympathy note. Some even did a personal blog.
Last night he reached out to me in a blog and just said: "Why, Joe?" I didn't have any answers for him.
Today, I stopped...paused and just said a prayer for my friend who suffered an unimaginable tragedy.
Then I realized, I have been so busy trying to set up my new website. Answered all the blogs, made my usual daily blog, did 3 posts for my new site.
Then it hit me... what if I were in Carson's shoes? Would I be blogging? Working on my website? Or maybe reaching out to my friends with a WHY?
Life is just too short. I'm 82. How much longer do I have? Who knows?
You darn tooting... I'm taking a step back. Thinking of my friend.
Yes, I will continue to help people. I will continue to blog, but right now, I hurt with my friend.
Carson2, we care. You're in our thoughts and prayers. Feel like this is too religious? Deal with it.
