For me, I would have just finished my evening class, having spent my day with my children and family This is something that most people don’t want to think at all about – myself included – but hey, every now and then something happens that makes us all take stock of where we are and how we are living our lives
The moral of this viewpoint is that we shouldn’t worry about the little things that gnaw away at us each week. We certainly shouldn’t allow ourselves to be distracted and overly focused on them, when there is precious LIVING to be done. The sands are running through our personal hourglasses – it is important to have clarity on what really matters to each of us. For me, the important things are time with my family, deep friendships, my martial arts training and other activities that bring me joy – also, it is important to me that I make a positive difference to the world in some way … my guess is that many of my students have much the same kind of aspirations.
So put the small annoyances to the side and stride forward with passion. There is simply no stopping the sunset – and midnight arrives just six hours after that!
See you in class.
