Reassessing Priorities

It’s funny being a little older (I’m thirty-one) and seeing the difference in priority between age groups. The other day, I was at a coffee shop and overheard a student being excited about being old enough to drink.

It’s a special right of passage for sure, but it’s so removed from my current list of priorities I forgot that needing to be legal to drink was a thing.

Not to yuck someone else’s yum. I just found it funny how different 5-10 years can make. I don’t bat an eye at drinking nowadays, but I don’t drink very often anyway.

Same with thinking about the kids who are learning to drive. I remember how terrifying it was to merge onto the highway when I first got my license.

Sometimes we take things for granted what’s normal for us is completely special or abnormal for someone else.

It might be completely normal for you to cook every day, marinate chicken and ferment vegetables, but to someone else, what’s normal for them is ordering takeout every night.

Having different priorities in life naturally happens depending on what you are trying to accomplish in your life and the environment you are currently in.

It’s good to assess and reassess what your current actions are prioritizing.

Are you prioritizing your current and future goals /dreams or are you allowing your past priorities to run your life?

It’s also good to look back and remember how far you’ve come, how much you’ve learned and know compared to the average person out there. Just because we dive deep into a skill doesn’t mean everyone has.
