What's important

I have gone through life wanting things, desiring more than I had, and wanting to keep up with those around me. I have sometimes forgotten to appreciate the things I have and done. I get caught up in life, the media promoting images that tell you will make you happy and without those things you will not be happy. I am guilty of keeping up with Joneses, guilty of trying to fill a hollow in my life with material things. I am not always this way but I have found that there are times in my life where those material things matter more than the important things.

I know what's important in life. I value those close to me and foster those relationships that deserve to be fostered, loved and grown. I love my family, my friends. I care for people, I want to help make the world a better place, I want to show respect for everything and everyone. I try to live by my values everyday, showing respect and love for everyone. I get better everyday and have a better understanding everyday of the really important things in life. I know that what's important to me may not be important to everyone, but so long as it is important to me, those things must influence my goals and desires in life.

When I put aside those desire for those material objects it becomes apparent what the sweetest things in life are. The sweetest things in my life are my babies cries, my eldest sons hugs, my friends well wishes, my Adrian's kisses and help from my family. Things that are given freely without strings and only because it is felt that they are deserved of the recipient.

It is those things that I reciprocate and offer to my loved ones. I know that people need these things to survive in life. If needing a ear to talk to is something you need, call me. If you need to vent in an email, email me. If you need a shoulder to cry on, my shoulders are wide for resting heads on. I may not be a millionaire, I may not have connections in high places, but I will be there for you if you need it. That is my promise to my friends, family and those that need me. I can only offer myself and that is important to me. As long as I can give of myself, then I should and will.

So in helping to make this world a better place I shall offer what I can of myself. :D
