I have been thinking about being in a hurry a lot these days. I see myself and others always rushing to get somewhere, do something, achieve something. And yet I seem to forget the results of my rushing as soon I it happens. I get to my destination rushed, stressed so much that I don’t even remember what I was rushing for because I have only a few moments then on to the next rush. I am in a hurry to achieve a goal and once it is achieved I don’t allow myself to enjoy it or celebrate it. On to the next in a rush.
I had an accident a few weeks ago and my MCL has been torn. I am in a brace, moving at a snails pace and my mind is still rushing. I think the Universe is attempting to show me that I must slow down and be in this moment. It sure isn’t easy yet here I am with no choice but to slow down. Actually I do have a a choice to either slow down, heal properly so I can have a healthy life in years to come or I can continue to rush and have a knee that does not work well in years to come. So I have chosen to slow down now, for my health, my life and me.
The choice for me to slow down is causing me to learn a great deal about me in the last number of weeks. I am learning about trusting the universe, learning about being more peaceful, learning about enjoying this moment, learning about just being happy in the here and now.
Are you rushing? How is it affecting your life? Would love to hear about your experiences.
Until my next post, Wendy
