Yesterday, our amazing trips turned five years old. The very same day, my company had a corporate meeting on the east coast, where my attendance was requested. Since this was a global meeting that only happens once every three years, the decision as to whether or not I should go was a very difficult choice.
Life is all about making choices and quite often, those choices come with a sacrifice. But once you know what your BIG priorities are in life, you can very quickly identify a genuine sacrifice. Those are the ones that might haunt or nag at you, for years to come.
Ultimately, I took advice from the Great Counselor and let my conscience be my guide.
So yesterday, while my co-workers were rubbing shoulders with corporate managers in the Nation's Capital, I was rubbing shoulders with a bunch of cartoon characters and three birthday celebrating five-year-olds who have never been so excited in their entire lives.
And quite frankly - neither have I.
