It was a Tuesday

It was a Tuesday.

We got the notice.

My daughter’s cheerleading team is going to nationals.

You would think I would be excited.

But I shrugged.

The competition takes place midweek in Orlando.

That meant I would have to take time off.

I recently launched a business.

I have employees to manage.

Clients to serve.

The timing wasn’t good.

Reluctantly, I searched for flights.

To minimize time away, I booked flights that arrived right before and departed right after the competition.

My daughter asked, “do we have time to visit a theme park?”

She’s always wanted to go to SeaWorld.

I told her, “I am sorry, but no. I have to get back to work.”

Then she asked, “aren’t you the boss?”

I said, “yes.”

Then she inquired, “what’s the point of being the boss if you can’t take off?”

I felt like I got hit over the head.

She’s right.

Why was I in such a rush to get back?

I have a great team.

Clients are happy.

The business will still be there.

But, my daughter is growing up.

Her interests are evolving.

We may not have the same opportunity to experience a theme park.

I changed the flight and bought SeaWorld tickets.

Now, I can’t wait for the competition.

It put things in perspective.

Sometimes we get so busy chasing success; we forget why we’re chasing it.
