Changing priorities

Leave a comment

Changing priorities sound like a big thing but its something we do all day long. Or at least I do. Maybe that is why I’m a bit all over the place but it works for me.

The ability to have set priorities and stick to them and the knowledge and experience to change on a dime when needed. Changing priorities should have good reasons and sound judgment as well as the courage to change.

Today some of my priorities changed. I can go back and second guess. I can lament that maybe I didn’t plan well initially or didn’t give the plan enough effort. But the older I get the less I do of that. I’m finding doing what I’ve chosen isn’t always the most productive. Maybe not sticking to a plan or objective. But most of the time its the right thing to do and usually the most rewarding.

Today I spent the day in love. With my granddaughter and granddog.

There are plans for tomorrow. But I’ll see what else is being run up the flagpole and adjust for the wind.

I wish everyone was awake for sunrises and sunsets.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • For some reason, in my lifetime I thought I’d see Maryland competitive with Penn State on the football field. Good thing I’m only in my 60’s. This might take some time.
  • Be careful of commitments. Make sure they are to the right people and for the right things.
  • And here I sat down 45 minutes ago without a thought in my head about what to post this evening. I almost panicked. And now that I read what I’ve done I can see why.
  • I wish the bitterness was gone. I wish the trust in each other would return. I long for the laughter there used to be. Well, we can always hope tomorrow will be better.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
