Keep Your Eyes Open

By: Shawn Davis

Sometimes life gets so busy that we tend to overlook the little things or neglect the most important aspects of our lives. We all do it! There are times, though, that the things we don’t pay enough attention to can be the thing we could least afford to lose (man, I have been there).

We’re dealing with: family, work, finances, religion, friends, bills, school, etc; some of these sound familiar? I thought so. With so much going on in this digital age you’d think we’d have a way to schedule enough time to dedicate to all the directions we’re being pulled in. It doesn’t seem to be going that way though.

I’m not writing this to be preachy or call anyone out because I’m as guilty of screwing up my priorities as anyone else. In dealing with a loss you come to realize that all the other things that were in the picture shouldn’t have been photographed to begin with. In lieu of the aftermath you find yourself wanting to find a way to build a time machine to go back and change the past. Hindsight, right?

The other train of thought could be one of: Everything happens for a reason! That’s true and I’m an adamant supporter of that statement but the reason is neglect, which could be remedied once we take our time to process what’s in front of us before we get to the point where regret has taken residence in our hearts.

Just take your time to evaluate the most important thing in your life – and take all the steps needed to make sure you don’t lose it.
