Sometimes I can’t believe it myself. How fleeting life is and how many opportunities I had to bury myself (yes, bury) but for the choices I made in my life.
Knowing this has inspired me to slow down a little bit, just as I see everybody rushing and hasty and desperate to move faster than this rock is spinning in orbit. It’s laughable when you think about it, how so many of us are just rushing around, putting our lives at risk and making poor choices but for to get somewhere faster than we were yesterday. And so, by this post I’m actually affirming to myself and to my loved ones that it’s important to slow down, to stop and smell the roses. The roses in our midst are the people that support us and love us and befriend us. Not the material items. Not our ability to make money. Not even in our ability to create. Granted those things might attract more people into our lives, but the truth is we are here for a certain amount of time. And we have a choice to enjoy that time, and to enjoy others in our midst or to blow that time for the sake of one upmanship, having more checkers than the next person, or building the bigger building. Yes ego and fascination and displaced esteem can really interrupt what I know to be peace, love and prosperity. You’ve acquired a lot of money, but are you happy? You have a bunch of toys surrounding you, a closet full of clothes you haven’t worn in years, and there are so many vacations you can’t decide where you’d like to call home. But again, are you happy?? Well that’s my rant for the day. I pray that you find peace and happiness and that there is calm, patience and wisdom in your every move. God bless, talk soon. Relentless
