Life is a sum of all your choices.
- Albert Camus
I haven’t written a blog post in almost three weeks.
Why? Is it because I’ve run out ideas? Nope—In fact, I’m discovering new insights I’m eager to share. Have I been so busy I forgot about my blog and my readers? No, Not a day goes by I don’t think about all you fine people on the other side of the screen. Maybe my blog just got pushed aside by everything else in my life? Uh-uh, I don’t see it that way.
It’s true, the past five weeks have been filled to the brim for me. It’s our busiest time of year at work. At home, we’re still in the “baby bunker” with our five-month-old. Meanwhile the two- and five-year-old haven’t slowed down a bit—if anything, I think they’re accelerating.
The real reason I haven’t posted anything recently is that I’ve chosen not to. Honestly, I’ve had to focus on more important things. We only have a fixed amount of time to work, rest, play, lead, learn, grow, share, and enjoy life.
And though I’m tempted to, looking back, I don’t regret the choices I’ve made in the past few weeks. Why? Because I made those choices on purpose. Life didn’t just happen to me—I happened to it.
What about you? Are you leading your life, or is it leading you?
What intentional choices do you need to make this week? What choices do you need to help others make?
