It's Aloha Friday.
Are We There Yet?Aloha folks.
No, that's not a question from the back seat of the car. That question, or one very similar is one that I ask myself very often. And I might guess that a lot of you do too.
There are actually several questions that I find I ask myself.
"What do I want out of Life? (Where am I going?)"
"Have I achieved my goals? (Am I there yet?)"
"Is there still time to accomplish anything worthwhile? (Or,
are we already there?)
When I was younger, those were valid questions. Now that I'm older I sometimes feel they are just reminders of a life not completely successful. But how do you measure a successful life?
Money and possessions?
Family and friends?
Achieving those goals you set for yourself a long time ago?
One of my long-time goals was to have enough money that I would be able to retire early and enjoy life. Got the first part down.
Too bad I didn't realize back then that to really enjoy life, you have to be healthy. And your family needs to be healthy.
I suggest to you, that you step back and look at your life. Ask yourself, "Where am I going? And what do I want to find when I get there?" Then step to one side and look again at your life, and the answers you've given to those questions. See if you've given yourself the right answers. See if you've taken everything into consideration that you need to.
And then realize that no matter what you do, you're going to eventually wind up somewhere. And it may or may not be where you intended to go.
There's an old saying that I think on often.
"Do you want to hear God laugh? Tell Him your plans."
Okay folks, see you next week.
