At the end of your life,
you will never regret
not having passed one more test,
not winning one more verdict
or not closing one more deal.
You will regret time not spent
with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.
— Barbara Bush
I chose this quote first in honor of Barbara Bush and the wonderful example she set for us. Second, I chose this quote simply because it states the truth. A truth that so many of us fail to recognize until it’s too late. For the last 10 years or so, I have tried to change my focus to the people in my life not the things, Many days, I am successful.
What does this quote say to you?
As part of my 2018 goal to Spread Joy, I am sharing quotes, poetry, photos and sometimes just my thoughts on Thursdays — Thoughtful Thursdays. My hope is that these posts will help me (and maybe others) focus on the joys of life.
Thoughtful Thursday Link Up
I’d love to have others join me. It’d be wonderful to have a full-page of great quotes, poetry and photos to share. Simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org your positive or thoughtful quote, photo or poetry along with your post link by 2:00 PM CST each Wednesday. We are working on spreading joy; so please stay positive. I’ll combine everything and post on Thursday afternoon. (You do not have to be a Word Press blogger or write a post to participate; but I will post your link if you choose to write a post.)
