The number two thing that people regret on their deathbed (according to www.beyondblindfold.com) is... not to work so much.
This hit a little close to home with me.
An anchor is a person or thing that provides stability or confidence in an otherwise uncertain situation. Do I do this? When bills seem to pile high..when I am frustrated with the kids' homework, when I know there is a deadline coming up...am I representing an anchor?
People regret missing out on their kids' childhood memories or even their companionship that they could have with their spouse. Is this me?
Justin and I come home everyday exhausted...just like every other working parent and... we are tired. When my kid ask, "Will you play hide and go seek," or "will you come buy something from our store?" (that they created on their own)...will I be too tired or... will I be the one who says..."YES?!"
I do not want to be on my deathbed wishing that I had done MY kids' childhood differently because I was too tired.. or... because I did not have enough money. Memories are things that I can NEVER get back...money....yes, I need it, but it is replaceable....memories are not.
I have been in many boats where we have to "re-anchor" because the anchor would not hook...I want to have my anchor hook .... I do not want it to matter with how busy I am...I need my kids to know they are first.
My Repurpose for today : Make my anchor a strong one where my kids know that they are first...before anything... so that on my deathbed...I have no regrets.
I am an everyday mom who likes everyday things. I love taking everyday items and giving them a repurpose. Our number one seller is our candles!
