We live too fast.
We eat too fast.
We measure our lives by how quickly we get things done.
We live in a world where speed is key.
The faster the better.
Or so we think.
We rush through our day, our week, our months and years and forget that in wishing away our life, we are losing a precious commodity that we can never get back – TIME.
Why are we in such a hurry? What is so important that we need to rush – need to be quick – need to be abrupt and neglect what is right in front of our eyes?
I certainly don’t know. It’s not like I have anywhere to be these days and yet, when cleaning the house, cooking or washing dishes it’s like I’m in a race against time.
WHY? What on earth for?
We waste so much time as it is, yes. But there’s beauty in slowing down and just being in the moment. Life is too short and that becomes abundantly clear the older we get.
My goal right now is to slow down and be present in the task I am doing in that moment and appreciate it to the fullest.
Savor the now. 🙂
