Ever had one of those moments that matter
but you didn't know it until much later?
Had one of those today
These are moments you can NOT buy back
I washed my sheets yesterday and I don't know about you, but I just LOVE the smell of clean sheets.
As I was making my bed today, I had a flashback to one of those precious moments that matter
(I'll get to that in a minute)
you see, In 2008, I did the unthinkable and I walked away from my 20 year career in Law Enforcement as a patrol sergeant working the graveyard shift on the Las Vegas strip.....
I enjoyed my job, had a great squad, never a dull moment on the Las Vegas strip, and LOVED the adrenaline rush of each and every night
but I made a decision to put my family first
I got scared, real scared...
my 80 year old mom had a mild heart attack and the possibility of losing her right then and there ...got REAL, and it shook me to my core
the whole thing happened so fast
it was just a regular doctor visit and went from a normal thing we did,
to suddenly me feeling very helpless as I watched them load my mom in the back of an ambulance and hurry her to the hospital and all I could do was follow and do my best to keep up
(never been so grateful for drivers training in a patrol car - I was right on their tail)
as if being scared of losing my mom wasn't enough, when I decided to walk away from my job (without the years needed for a full pension) I was terrified of walking away from a guaranteed income and all the perceived security that job brought...
it was not the best financial decision I could make
I did it anyways
About the time I got retirement check, I realized I had to find another way to get my income back to the 6 figures I was accustomed to and I started searching on the internet.
I wanted to find something that would replace my 6 figure income, but not require me to show up and be at a job 40 or more hours a week selling my time for money
I wanted to make a lot of money AND have time freedom
I needed the freedom to be able to work from home, and be there for my mom and young daughter: School, doctor appointments, school functions, hospital stays for my mom and eventually, becoming a full time caregiver
Fortunately, I was sitting on my living couch Dec 26th, 2011 searching around on my laptop when I got an email from an old friend telling me about this system he had come across and read as he shared some stories with me
in that email, he sent me to a link like this one ( http://trk.as/moments
) and told me to be sure and watch the video, so I did.
That was the day my life changed forever!
I sat there shocked at what I was seeing in that video
Could it be true?
Had I finally found a way to live a life of freedom while working towards replacing my 6 figure income?? from home??

Today, almost 4 years later, I'm living a life of freedom, on my own terms, took care of my mom until her last breath (2013), honoring her every wish to transition on her own terms at home, and recently just moved my family to Kauai ( Hawaii)
All because I was willing to be open to checking out a simple system that was working for others
when I watched the video...I believe I cried because I knew that I had found a way to get my time back, to live life full out, and most importantly, NEVER EVER miss a moment that mattered
so back to today,...
I'm making my bed and I smell that clean sheet smell and I had a flash back
I flashed back to a day where my mom was very weakened and needed help getting into bed every night
I would help her bathe, get dressed, help her lotion up her feet and hands (effects of diabetes), help her get positioned just right, rub some of her favorite lavender lotion on her, and ...
I'd tuck my mom in for the night (talk about role reversal right?)
one night I had washed the sheets that day and I'll never forget that smile on her face as she was all tucked in, smiling from ear to ear because I believe she felt loved, and she too, loved the smell of clean sheets.
There are Moments in our lives that matter my friend heart emoticon
That was just one of many for me
When will you start taking your time serious and start making sure you are around for the ones YOU love creating your own moments that matter?
Here's your chance to take a look at the system I saw (new and improved) and get a look at what I sawhttp://trk.as/moments
