Thursday Inspiration

At the beginning of this year, I had to make a major life decision about whether or not to close down my business. My business was my baby. I had been laboring over it for seven years, operating at a significant loss. I loved my employees and had clients who had been an important part of my life, and who would be left with few options when I closed the business.

 

While the financial loss played a major role in my decision to close the business, almost as important was realizing that I wasn’t living the life I wanted to live and putting my energy into what was most important to me – my family. It was extremely difficult to let down my employees and my clients, who had come to be friends, but at the end of the day, I realized, if I die tomorrow, will I be happy that I missed every time my kids needed me when they were sick? Or would I regret the fact that due to the high stress of running my particular business, my chronic illness was constantly in a flare so I never had the energy to engage with my husband or kids at the end of the work day, or many weekends?

 

Sometimes we need to step back and re-evaluate the life we live. This quote inspires me.
