I started a thread in a forum on a day that turned into a day when 2 people I loved ended up in pain. When I started the thread all was well. By the end of the day someone was in the hospital. Both people that had issues that day recovered, but it was a day that scared the heck out of me.
Losing 2 children shocked my system to the core, losing the first set me on the path to serious affiliate marketing. I needed to work at home to be with my other child. I couldn’t cope with being with people that thought the “important” things were whether the coffee was made or the door was too squeaky.
I can’t say enough that life is absolutely too short. Please enjoy your friends and family, do work you don’t hate and take time to enjoy your life. It has taken me a very long time and very special people to get me to be able to function well again and stop being a workaholic to run from the world. Too many of *us* right here use our self employment as an excuse to work when we should take a break. And others choose to spend their time on activities that are not productive nor enjoyable.
Balance. Life is too short, so enjoy it with balance.
June 25th 2009 2 icons died. Children lost their parents, parents lost their children, the world lost people they loved. Controversial or not, they were both loved.
The point of posting this is just to give us a reminder to be good to ourselves and those we love, re-read the posts that have good advice.
Hug someone you love, go offline and play with your kids, call someone far away. Tomorrow they may not be here. And that isn’t said in a mean way, or a condescending way. I said goodbye twice without a clue that it would be the last time.
Sometimes tomorrow doesn’t come.
