Author’s Note: Today (and many days) I find I need a reminder – not just to accomplish the things that are on my to-do list, but also to remember what’s important in life when my days get busy. I’ve done this before and now I am tagging all these posts for easy recollection under “Things I’d like to Remember.” (In case you’re interested.)

One day, I hope I can say that I gave enough of my time to my kids – enough time to teach them what I have to teach, while still factoring in enough freedom for them to also learn on their own.
One day, I hope I can say that I put priority and focus on my marriage – because I see how lucky I am to have found a partner for life and not just a partner in raising a family.
One day, I hope I can say that I reached high – not only for my family’s goals, but also for my own personal ones. I hope I can say that I took every opportunity that I was given (or fought hard to create) and went for it…
With NO regrets.
One day, I hope I can say that I did all I was meant to do – a profound goal in itself which may seem lofty and unattainable to some, yet I believe is able to be accomplished because doing it all…
Doesn’t mean doing it all perfect.
Life is all about about give and take…
and ongoing attempts to balance the imbalance,
while remembering to understand that mistakes are life’s greatest teachers.
Mistakes are meant to be learned from – not to be taken down from.
Most of all, one day I hope I can say… that throughout the majority of my life, even in knowing my own goals, that my focus was not always on the future, but on the present.
Because I am beginning to notice that the present goes by way too fast and deserves my undivided attention at all costs. Under no circumstance can I allow myself to forget the importance of the present and how it will effect…
