The important things in life

Every once in a while something happens to make you stop and reevaluate. Sometimes its big things, like the earthquake in Christchurch, or the tsunami in Japan. Sometimes its the loss of a family member. Sometimes its a accident at work, the 'It could have been me' scenario. And sometimes its just noticing how tall a little girl is. And occasionally all of the above.

I'm not going to go on about spending every day like it was your last. I wouldn't turn up to work if it was my last day on earth. If everyone lived like that it would very soon be our last day.

The things we should do today are more subtle then that. Am I happy on my current path? If I keep going in this direction will I be happy in ten years? In twenty? In fifty? Am I spending the right amount of time doing the things I want to do? The things I would like to do? The things I have to do?

Its no good planning to be happy at some future time. Every moment of our lives is going to have a bad and a good. Plan to be happy today.

For me there was no drastic changes to be made. Just a few small ones. How about you?
