Importance

1 Mar

I recently met up with a couple of friends recently and listened to their story and through their stories found a similar theme. For the sake of simplicity and anonymity, lets just say name them R and E. R was and still is undergoing a divorce. It was very disappointing to see how as wonderful person that she is, experience such an unhappy heartbreaking ordeal.  I sat with her and asking whether are other alternatives and if it was salvageable.   We often have little gatherings sharing stories and support each other with advice and pointers, almost like the Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan  :).  The other friend E, also had her share experience and trials in life as a single mother.  Nevertheless,  despite their ongoing experiences and no matter how downtrodden they are, their spirit was still alive.    They realized what was still important to them and they live and breathe by it.

I look at them, it makes me think, sure I’ve had my share of  experiences from gossip to drama.  But I’ve learned that I am different, it is the difference that makes me unique.  This was what I summarized from our meetings, and from my own experience.

Coca Cola juggling-previewImportance:  families, health, friendship, spirit and helping others minus the expectation of a return.  Obviously job and education but that came after the 1st three.   I read a moving article done by Brian G. Dyson, CEO of Coca Cola.  As moving as it was it was also inspiring.  I always look onto that as a a pick me up.

Life is short, time was limited thus I will continue on with my bucket list and what was important with me.  For those of you who have encountered strife, I also encourage you to look at what was important or of importance in your life, focus on those and the rest shall fall into place.
