Our first assignment was to go through various exercises that would lead us to write our Top Priority Statement. I was surprised, although not shocked, to see that my priorities have been way off lately. Here and now, I publicly apologize to my husband. I am afraid I have been so absorbed in the pursuit of growing my business that he has been left behind a few too many times. Today that changes. Anything that goes against my number-one priority has taken too much of a hold on me and needs to be cut back.
My Top Priority Statement:
“My number-one priority is to grow in my relationship with the Lord while being ever-present in the lives of my family; to share His love through community involvement, volunteering, and educating others on how to live their best lives; to honor my family by spending quality time together, listening, engaging, and sacrificing to help each other feel important, admired, trusted, respected and supported; to raise an empathetic son who knows he is a blessed child of God who can do and be anything; to eliminate time wasters, distractions, activities and pursuits that would take me away from my family and God.”
