This past week has been an emotional roller coaster for me and it has nothing to do with work, real estate or property management.
Last Monday I was notified that my Aunt was ill and moved to Hospice. I was able to get a flight out early Tuesday morning and was able to visit with her while she was still somewhat conscious.
Jean was no ordinary Aunt; she lived with us while growing up and was like a second Mom to me.
I am thankful that I got to see her in time. Wednesday morning I was with her in her room when she passed away. She is now with her sister (My Mom) and no longer in pain.
Jeans funeral was Friday and coincidently my niece was graduating from law school on Saturday.
One day you are down, the next you are ecstatic and congratulating your niece on a job well done. Not only did Staci graduate, she graduated Magna Cum Laude.
It was strange within the span of 24 hours going from the low of loss to the high of my niece’s success.
No matter how hard you work, how much success you have… at the end of the day it comes to family.
No one lying on their death bed had regrets of “Not spending more time at the office”. It was always about the regret of not spending more time with your family.
When you leave for work tomorrow ask yourself this question…
If you knew you had 30 days left to live, what would you do with your life?
Then ask yourself … How do you know, you don’t have 30 days left?
