No time like the present!
We live in the fast lane, and because of that, we leave ourselves little time to check up on important people and things. I don’t know about you, but I am guilty of living in the fast lane. I have tunnel vision, and sadly I unknowingly push away people that didn’t deserve the PUSH.
Checking On The Check
My husband always uses the term “checking on the check.” He’s referring to checking on his kids by ensuring they have their priorities straight or just shooting the breeze with them. However, when using this term more often than not, he’s referring to checking on his physical goals.
As I type this, I can picture him flexing in the mirror while he’s “checking on the check.”
Today/MY Meaning of Checking on The Check
Now that you know how this phrase originated, I want to share how I want to use it.
I don’t check in on people who mean a great deal to me, and I have to change that. Days, weeks, hell months can go by before I pick up my phone and either text or call someone to say HI. The struggle is real with me and my ability to reach out to someone to see how they are doing. I guess I assume no news is good news. Therefore if I don’t hear from ya, all must be going somewhat well.
But let’sbehonesty, that’s a shitty way to think!
How am I just going to assume all is well? Based on what exactly?
I am determined to do better by checking on the check, and in doing so, I’m starting with all of you. I would love to know how everyone is doing. I know the holidays can be a difficult time for some. And it can add extra financial stress by trying to keep up with your expensive Christmas list.
Gifts are great but checking on the check will mean a lot more to the ones you love. So take time to listen and express your love before it’s too late.
Pretend that today is all you have!
