- Buying insulin
- Paying utility bills
- Brushing my teeth
The list could go on, and it would be filled with those decidedly unglamorous pursuits of life. I would not list things like:
- Have my nails done
- Cover the grey
- Eat lunch
Priorities should be the stuff of boring conversation. They don't keep cocktail party folks engaged - they don't result in weekends filled with social invites - and they make fast food a living-on-the-edge experience.
I'm okay with that. I'm generally too tired to fill my weekends and my liver is far too healthy for cocktail parties. I do splurge on occasion but it tends to be for things like organic food delivered to my house.
My priorities aren't the stuff of excitement. Not even of thrilling blog posts. But having a few really boring priorities makes for a life that has a pretty good foundation.
And I'm okay with that, too.
