Today’s post will be short, sweet and to the point!
My Daughter was 2 years old and I was busy, …. extremely busy. I would have left to ‘work’ before she woke up and often didn’t get home from ‘work’ until she was asleep. “I had my weekends though”, I continued to tell myself. I was so focussed on ‘work’ that the most important thing in my life was not even part of my life!
I was so pre-occupied with my ‘work’ that it didn’t even strike me until, as a 2-year old, my Daughter said to me one day “Daddy you are too busy to play”. That one comment broke my heart and changed things forever!
I immediately stopped what I was doing and changed my mindset. Family first, everything else second!!!!
I was so “busy” that even my Daughter had noticed and that is not acceptable.
‘School’, my passion, the job that I LOVE became ‘work’. Something I had promised myself would never happen. Being busy got in the way of my passion for education.

I will never let that happen again. Work can wait, but my family can’t – I changed my daily routines to fit in with my families schedule, my family needed to see me more!
I am so lucky my daughter said that one comment. It has changed my world forever.
Don’t let yourself get caught in the same situation. Put your family first no matter what – they are everything!
Family first, everything else second! Have an amazing week ahead!
