It’s easy to focus our attention on all the wrong things. They aren’t necessarily bad things, but they are unimportant in the scheme of life. So what are the important things in life? Family. Friends. Faith.
Those three things make up the most important things in our lives. They are also often the first three things to fall to the wayside when our lives get busy and frazzled. Keep the main things the main things. Don’t forget to spend time with those you love. Stop and play with your kids. Spend time talking with that friend who needs you. Spend time in God’s word. The unimportant things aren’t going anywhere.
Sometimes when we feel like we’re drowning, we just need to change our perspective. We forget how blessed we really are. Yes, I always have a huge pile of laundry, but I have six beautiful children making that laundry. Yes, I never get enough sleep, but I have a healthy one year old who wants to snuggle with me. I am so blessed. With those blessings come a lot of work. But, I wouldn’t trade all the work for the ones I love.
Try to remember that in the scheme of life, the little things are the big things. When you’re trying to keep your head above water, pull your focus off the unimportant and focus on the important.
