What I wish I’d known
The older I get, the more I stress the importance of family and friends. They are, ultimately, what our life is about, whether we like it or not.
It’s not about the job. That comes and goes and changes over time.
It’s not about the latest technology you have access to. That will crash and burn at some point.
It’s not even about the money. Yes we need it (unfortunately) for food and shelter, but it’s not all about money.
Life is about those we share our breathing moments with. Our mom, dad, sister, brother, uncle, aunt, cousins, childhood friends, adulthood friends, school friends, college friends, spouse, you name it.
At the very end of our life, that moment before we take in our last breath, you’re going to want those people near you, right beside you, holding your hand, and reminding you that everything will be ok.
Because you know what? Nothing else will matter.
