Dear Loving Soul,

One of the best things about life is having choices available to us every day . . . and one of the hardest parts of life is having choices available to us every day.

There are so many ways to spend our time, so many things to be a part of. There are so many things to learn . . . so much to do.

We try our best to make good choices, don’t we?

We can fill our time with so many good things. We can say yes to so many good things. We can fill every hour of every day with things that are so, so, so good . . . and many times, that is exactly what we do.

Then sometimes we find that our lives are so filled with very good things that we have absolutely no time left for the BEST things.

We find we have no time for the things that we deeply love . . . and more specifically, for the people we deeply love.

A life that is very fulfilling is full of making sacrifices . . . and sometimes the bravest thing is to give up something very good for something that is even better . . . giving up the good in our life for the best in our life. Putting aside, even for just a season, the things we simply care about to make room for the things and people that we deeply love.

You are brave enough, and you know exactly what to do. It will be worth it.

You are so very loved.
