Yesterday was a day of sorting out priorities. What is a priority?
-Precedence, especially established by order of importance or urgency.
-An established right to precedence.
-An authoritative rating that establishes such precedence.
-A preceding or coming earlier in time.
-Something afforded or deserving prior attention.
... OK: It's something more important than something else.
I think sometimes we don't exactly know what our priorities are. Maybe we think we know, but really we don't. Talking to HE last night I realized I was not as high up on his priority list as he was on mine. Maybe he didn't realize this, but I sure did. We discussed it and he provided several excuses for which I really didn't give any heavy consideration to. The simple fact of the matter is that if something isn't your priority it's because you don't want it to be. Of course, this is where I would argue that "Yes, my family is a priority... I just don't have the time to see them..." but really, if they were my priority, I'd drag my butt down to see them more often. And this is the simple, sometimes harsh truth. This discussion with HE prompted me to consider my priorities and they, of course, are not where they should be... but hey, I'm 18 and there's room for improvement.
So, are your priorities where they should be? Really?
