You’ve probably heard before many people say that “Family is Everything.”
Well… to me, Family is ALWAYS Everything!
We’re born into this world and immediately loved and accepted by family members. Our parents mean everything to us. They not only created us but they help mold us and shape us into the amazing people that we are. We in inherit a lot of our beliefs and values from them.
I can tell you from the perspective of a 48 year old man that as we get older we learn to appreciate and love our families even more. Why? Because after decades of many blood, sweats, and tears, family is the one thing that always remains constant.
Girlfriends, boyfriends, jobs, and co-workers may come and go but you’ll always have one mother, one father, and if you’re lucky like me, you also have one or more siblings.
When you have kids everything changes. First-time parents often realize what a life-changing experience it is to be responsible for a little creature that would one day grow up to be so many things, and that would bring so many great memories.
When I was younger I used to placed too much focus on career and business. But now I wish I would have done more with my children when they were younger. Don’t get me wrong. I was always there for them. But I could have bolded the word always a bit more.
If you’re an entrepreneur, a business person, or someone that’s just getting started as a young adult, keep in mind that family should always be considered when facing most of life’s biggest decisions. Why? Because they will always be there for you.
