There are things that beat all other things in life. Events that make other thoughts and worry clouds disappear. When these trump cards are played, your priorities suddenly become crystal clear and the problems that previously occupied your mind feel small.
These days my son is the mother of all trump cards for me. If he is in danger or even just hungry, I become a complete bulldozer ignoring everyone else’s needs, including my own. Particularly painful when he started walking at 9 months and went on kamikaze assignments around the house.
The other day my uncle past away. We were very close and for several days I cried when I thought about his life and what his immediate family is now going through. Death, illness and family are other trump cards for me.
What are your trump cards?
How can we be better at playing them every day without waiting for a crisis to reminds us of what’s important?
