I guess being at the ripe age of 21 my mind was on all the things that a young man that age thinks about namely money, women and having fun. At the age I am at now I realized that my priorities were all mixed up.
I have learned that my real priorities are now
- continuing to grow in all aspects of my life mental, physical and spiritually. Jan Alridge a minster I heard over the weekend reminded me of an old saying "if you're not moving forward you are moving backwards "
- treasure genuine connection you have with people. In my life I have had many friends come and go. I am often accused of being guarded and not open but that is far from the case. I choose who I call a friend very carefully. I take the saying "you are the average of your five closes friends literally".What is the point of keeping friends around that pushing you to become better.
- be more selfless. being an only child i have a lot of residual spoiled child tenancies Over the years I have learned that our life goal and mission are to give. Give of your time, energy and talents to the world.
