If you could only pick one area of your life that totally thrived [family, health, career, spiritual], which would you choose?
I'd pick spiritual. Seems I'd have more peace of mind to deal with everything else if spiritual life was above & beyond!!

Spiritual hands down. I think with a solid spiritual mindset everything else falls in place. Just now learning this, but I am still young.

I more than agree. I'm living it. Everything else simply falls into place.

I'm 1/2way there. Gotta admit I succumb to life's pressures & still have difficulty focusing on the bigger picture instead of obstacles on earth.

My career could use a boost, but family, health, and spirituality are all going great!

Default Good thread!

For me, Health. Strong like Ozzy Osbourne and Rasputin.

Career a close second, Only cause of longevity in jobs and income stable and increased over the years.

Honestly, having been in dire financial straights in the recent past, even spirituality can be an unobtainable goal. A little money is a prerequisite for all of your options. I know, its not a very philosophical answer.

It's okay stevo6. Answers don't have to be philosophical. Weird as it may sound though, God is the ONLY constant in my crazy life. That's why I try to put Him first, for my own sanity. Sorry guys, didn't mean to preach. LOL
