What’s really important?


Wallace’s Weekly Wrap

Happy Friday you wonderful humans.

It’s been a tough week for our family this week so I’m going to keep today’s email short and sweet.

When we go through tough periods in our lives, (and we all go through them) we are intimately reminded of what is important, and what isn’t.

The material posessions, the pile of work on your desk, the daily frustrations, the washing, your instagram feed, the show you’re binging on Netflix, the emails sitting in your inbox. These are many of the things that occupy a significant part of your week, yet they pale in insignificance when you’re faced by circumstance to look at the three things that are the most important.

Lovefreedom and time.

The people that you love, the people who love you and those who you would do anything for. That is what it’s all about. To love and to be loved, that’s what makes all the heartache and pain worth it.

The freedom that comes with being of able body and able mind. If you have the capacity to walk, skip, jump, read, write, ruminate and converse, you’re incredibly fortunate. Embrace it, use your capacities, they won’t last forever.

Life is the longest thing you’ll ever do. But, In the scheme of things it’s an incredibly insignificant period of time. Time is a finite resource, don’t waste it by spending time doing things that don’t set your soul on fire. Kiss the girl, go on the adventure and take the leap.

If you’re going through a tough time at the moment, know that it will pass. Surround yourself with people and be kind to everyone you come in contact with. Feel how you need to feel, cry, laugh, and find time to just be. When things start to improve, do your best to smile, when you smile, the whole world smiles back at you.


P.S If you’re lucky enough to still have your grandparents and parents in your life, give them a call, or pay them a visit. They’ll appreciate it more than you’ll know.
