I'm going to the playground! It's "Take Your Parents to the Playground Day"! Yes there really is such a thing. Who knew? Unfortunately, I won't be taking my parents. They have both passed. But I'll be thinking about them while I am at the playground with my kids and grandkids.
Why am I writing about this on a network marketing site? It's not like it's a national holiday or anything. In fact, unless you sell playground equipment, you probably never heard of it before today. And as for going to the playground? When is the last time you did that? Who has the time?
Who has the time. That is why I'm writing about this today. Because when I read about this holiday today, it made me stop and think about my life and how blessed I am. And yes, some regrets I have. And how ANYONE can live the life I have now. And how I need to keep sharing with as many people as possible - before they run out of time.
I am blessed because even though my father has passed, I was able to spend the last eight years of his life with him. We weren't close when I was a kid. To have the opportunity to have a relationship with him is worth more than I can ever tell you. I still miss him and even now, eight years later, I will glance at "his" recliner and think where is he. I never thought I would have that with my dad and I'm so glad I did. And yes, going to the playground was something we did. He loved playing with his great-grandchildren!
I regret that I did not take the opportunity to build this life more seriously earlier. Because I did not get to spend much time with my mother before she passed. We saw each other a few times during my military career. And after I retired, she came to visit once. But other than funerals and weddings, I was always too busy with my JOB to take time to go home. Oh we talked on the phone. But that's not the same as being with your mom. So she got older, and although we were making plans to move her and my dad closer to us, one day she was just gone. I got the news on my answering machine when I got home from work. I wasn't even able to say good-bye.
Why am I sharing this? Because I don't want anyone else to miss out on whatever is important to them simply because they are too busy or don't have the money. I want everyone to know that you can run out of time to do the important things but if you are still breathing it's not too late to get started!
And so I am once again reminding you that network marketing is the easiest, least-expensive way to build a business available today. I'm telling you that with the power of the internet, you can build it from the comfort of your home. And I'm urging you to start - TODAY! Before you run out of time.
I don't even care if you join my team. Okay, I would like that of course. But the main point of this is to encourage you to find the company and the team that is right for you. My team. Someone else's. Part time. Full time. Whatever works for you. But do it!
So that's my spiel. Don't miss out on life because you passed the opportunity to make it better. If you want to talk to me further, about my company or network marketing in general, feel free to contact me!
And now, I'm going to the playground!
