We all have our own set of priorities. Whether it’s in our home life, profession, or hobby, how we set our priorities depends on our inner drummer. You know, the saying:
For some, keeping a spic and span house is a main priority. I knew a lady, each week she would take every glass, plate, bowl ~ everything ~ out of her cabinets and wash, dry, and put back. Needless to say, everything in her house was spotless. God rest her soul, a “spic/span” home was her main priority.
Quite the opposite, I’ve run across a few people that put even the slightest bit of basic housekeeping on the bottom of their list of priorities. That’s okay. That’s their drummer.
I fall somewhere in between.
It’s the same with professions and hobbies. I know the saying...
applies here as well.
For those obsessed with their professions, however, I do miss the friendships, the both-way conversations we once had.
Because my priorities may differ from someone else’s doesn’t mean they are any better, or less, than theirs. Turnaround is fair play. I find myself guarded, having to protect my priorities from some looking to take advantage.
I’ve learned ~ if it’s important, really important, people will find a way to get it done.
Maybe, a temporary shift in priorities?
