Keeping it all in Perspective

Sandy's post on Instant Perspective yesterday got me thinking.... She really spoke to my heart, to what I wrote about yesterday.

So, if you knew that your time was limited, what would you NOT do???

Here are a few of mine:

I would NOT be impatient.

I would NOT tell anyone to wait for me to "just finish this one thing."

I would NOT yell.

I would NOT turn down a single invitation for coffee and a playdate.

I would NOT tell my kids they can't paint because "I just don't have it in me today."

I would NOT put off snuggling with my sweetheart so that I could finish just one more load of laundry.

I would NOT let the details of life take priority over the act of living life.

Seriously, what about you?


  1. SO true! I will have to read that instant perspective post...

    will you stop by and tell me your thoughts on "Live Birth"... according to TN law?


  2. Oh that is so good! I need to make a list now!

  3. Oh...I've turned down my share of coffee and playdates. I would stop doing that, too.

    Great list.

    Thanks for linking to me. You rock.


  4. I would not hit the snooze button 4times in the morning.


I am so glad you stopped by! My hope is that we can engage in a conversation together. I love to reply to your comments, but I need your help to make that happen.

If you have a blogger profile, would you consider editing your profile to "show my email address?" Then, when I receive your comment in my email inbox, I can reply directly to you.

Alternately, you can check the box "email follow up comments to..." so that I can reply to you right here. (You will also receive other readers' comments using this method.)

I'm excited to get to know you better!
