And so, so true.
We spend a lot of time on a few great things.
If you let yourself get really contemplative it's one of those lines that can take your breath away a little bit. I've found myself thinking about that sentiment a lot in the last three weeks--ever since I first heard it.
Yes. I've spent a lot of time thinking about something I heard in an Apple commercial.
But really, it's so true and sometimes when the opposite is true it's convicting in a crucial way.
What are the few great things that I spend a lot of time on?
What are the millions of unimportant things that I spend a lot of time on?
I want my list of the 'few great things' to be......
1. My faith.
2. My marriage.
4. Strong relationships with people I see on a regular basis.
And of course my list of a million unimportant things that I currently spend a lot of time on but I don't want to includes--but is definitely not limited to......
1. Obsessing about losing five pounds....or ten....
2. Dust in my house and other various cleaning obsessions.
3. The computer.
4. Other people that I have NO control over.
So what are yours? What are the few great things that you want to spend a lot of time on? A few, just a few.
I think you've heard it before. Quality, not quantity--when it comes to people, relationships, experiences, and everything in between.
Oh Apple. You make amazing products and you challenge us to be better people. All at the same time. What can't you do?
On a semi-unrelated note.............
I made Georgia take a walk in the rain with me yesterday. She didn't like it. We did it all the time growing up and loved it. I'm confident one day she'll appreciate it. For now though--she just kept begging to go back home.
