Choosing the Latter

I had a different post planned for today. And I had planned to post it earlier, too. Much earlier. But the day started to slip away from me, and before I knew it, it was 4 in the afternoon and I still hadn’t blogged. So here I was, sitting at the computer trying to get the post ready, when along came the opportunity to go on a hike with Jake and my parents. The choice became finish working and get the blog post done, or spend time with family, enjoying this beautiful world we live. Well, today I chose the latter. And I don’t regret it for one second. Because there will always be an excuse, always another thing to get done on the never-ending list of things to get done. But there won’t always be the time, or the opportunity, to enjoy family and be with the ones you love.

So I'm writing this blog post to remind myself. There will always be something more to do. But I hope that when the time comes again,
I'll always choose the latter.
