Life in the Fast Lane

When a person's life gets too busy for close family members, it's definitely time to slow down. If I'm far too involved in other things that take me away from my children, it's time to redo my priority list. All too often I travel in the fast lane of life, until something breaks and it no longer works. Then, I'm forced to slow down, by no choice of my own. If people I claim to love take a back-seat to things that I'm doing, it's time to make some changes.

@shubhu3 Our kids should come first, that's the truth.

You are right, but sometimes as long as I want, I have to be busy, because I raise my own child and I need the money, but the child does not suffer because I work until deep in the night.

All circumstances are different. Some children do suffer, while others don't.

@kobesbuddy That's right. I believe that children who have richer parents suffer much more.

@Nevena83 My brother-in-law was from a wealthy family. They basically ignored him, most of the time. He was a very unhappy child!

You are so right my friend. If I had close family members I would not be online so much. Love the photo.

When family time comes second, we miss out on valuable things, that don't last forever.

I was giving far too much time to Internet activity. This kept me from doing other things, that needed to be done.

Such an important bit of advice! Sometimes we have no choice and sometimes it's our own choice. But we all come back to our families from time to time for that is the basis of life no matter what. Lovely photo there!
