Why You Should Spend More Time With Family
When you spend more time with family, you are happier… Correct? I know I am for sure. Growing up in a big Italian family, my Father worked really hard and worked quite a bit. My Father was a Furniture Maker and a Entrepreneur at a young age of 24. He came from Argentina to the US when he was 23 years old to find a better life, to work and to start a family. He got into the trade of furniture making and established himself very quickly. He had a pretty large workshop with about 30 employees. He definitely worked really hard to get to that point in his life. I remember there were times where he would come home super late and we would not even see him.
Now my Father did make it point to spend time with family though. We have a large family of 7. I have 4 Sisters and I am in the middle… Ha! He was around for all of our sports events, he took me fishing all the time, we would go on vacations and he made it a point to spend as much time with us as possible. He even coached our Soccer and Baseball teams! For the amount of time my dad worked, he sure did spend a lot of time with us and I loved that so much about him.
Here Was The Problem…
I do not want to really call it a problem, because at the time it was not really a problem. My father worked hard all his life and although he did enjoy many benefits of working for himself, raising a family and having a great home… He was tied to his business. He had a bit more leverage because he had employees and people who could take care of the business when he was gone. I’m sure it was not easy for him to do that, but I’m assuming it worked out when he was not there. He was still the main person that hired and fired everyone and he had many other responsibilities as a business owner. I would not necessarily say he was married to his business, but he sure was there quite a bit. I know deep down that all my dad wanted to do was fish and that is all he thought about all the time. We took vacations here and there and we would fish… Haha!
My Father really did work hard until he was 65, then he passed away. It is really hard for me to write this as I think of the amazing life my father has provided for us. He wanted no more than us to be happy and understand the value of being together as a family. It’s crazy to think that he worked hard basically 50 years of his life. Here I am at 47 years old, I have been working since I was 16 years old and I have worked just as hard as my Father. That’s what he taught me. I love the fact that I have that in me to work hard. The only issue I have with that is working hard is ok, but I really think that working my life away 5-6 days a week until I am 65 or even 75 terrifies me! There I said it… That does not sound fun to me. Now don’t get me wrong, I do love what I do, but I never considered myself to have a “normal” way of thinking. I always wanted to life my life against the grain… Hehe.
What Is The Solution?
#TakeLifeBack is my new “Thing.” Have a look here on Instagram. I am going to take my life back by sticking with this new business vehicle of having leverage and building a business that will work for me even when I am not working. Simple as that. I am going to step out of my comfort zone time and time again until I am in a spot of time and financial freedom. I know you have heard of these terms before, so why not make that a priority in life? Why wouldn’t you think like that? I DO want to spend more time with family. I DO want to travel more. I DO want to #takelifeback! I would hope you want to do the same thing.
