I normally write about how to prioritize and focus at work to reduce stress and wasted time. Today’s blog applies same principles to relationships.
This past weekend was the YMCA Adventure Program’s father daughter Spring camp out. It was a chance to spend two nights camping with my fifth grade daughter. I use these weekends as a break from the always connected life I usually live. My phone gets fully charged on Friday afternoon and I turn on low battery mode. The goal is to make it until Sunday morning without recharging my phone. I used my phone only for taking pictures and texting my family.
I make my daughter the number one priority on these weekends. I am there to spend time with her and do the activities she enjoys. This weekend she climbed the alpine tower, zip lined twice, and did well at archery and riflery. We even had the fastest canoeing time of the weekend. We made time Saturday afternoon to practice her volleyball. There were many hugs, snuggles, and hands held.
As Dr. Seuss said, “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.” Thanks to focussing on my number one priority this weekend we shared many moments and made some great memories.
