Life whirls us around full circle sometimes, leaving us with barely a moment to catch our breath before realizing that the entire day has passed us by. Such was my day today, and it reminded me to slow down, because today I missed out on my favorite petits plaisirs of life.
Busy making plans and getting over-involved in meaningless work, my day dissipated. In a weird way, we all need days like this, days that remind us to stop speeding our lives along. Beauty comes from a life well lived, not well rushed.
Direction is more important than speed. We are so busy looking at our speedometers that we forget the milestone.
Don’t lose your ability to enjoy the milestones of your daily journey in getting caught up in your speed. Tomorrow is a new day, a new opportunity, and a new pace of life. Enjoy what is happening around you and make sure you are going slow enough to take pictures and have a seat.
