Make Room

A person has friends because he has made room for them. He invests time and energy and sometimes money. A person who is learned is so because education has been welcome in his/her life and has been a priority. Some of us live in lovely homes – because we have made room in our budgets and lives to live as we do.

If you want to have good things filling your life, you have to make room for them.

When you create the time, the space, the energy, the interest, the passion and the commitment in your life for whatever you want to be there, they are much more likely to be present.

So many of  us waste our time envying others the things they have and wonder why we don’t have them. Many times it is because those things haven’t been important enough to us. They are just things to lust after, not things to work toward and for.

Give  the things you want in life priority. Know the cost in terms of resources, time, and energy. Then fill your life with them.

Strong ideas:

The past five years have driven this point home. While money is tight, the focus we've put on family has blossomed and the results are far more rewarding than financial could ever hope to be.

Take care of family and the rest will take care of itself.
