Nursing my ill daughter gave me an opportunity to re-evaluate my priorities. This is the second time in two weeks that she is unwell.
The moments where she smiled and played became precious commodities during these times. You almost wish that you could be there for future moments of anguish. It’s still possible now but certainly not forever.
You then realise that your life is to be devoted to the children for the next 2 decades at least. You re align your priorities accordingly. The focus were so different just a few years back.
You also start to realise that you need to re invent yourself. The conventional path is just not going to work. You draw inspiration from those that dared to dream! To make a difference where it matters, not just for the sake of it.
The journey has begun. You just have to come to grips with the twists that it holds and don’t lose focus of the destination. The destination does not have you in it though. That’s the sacrifice.
