Life is not a race. It is a journey.
Getting someplace first, before anyone else, has very little real and
lasting meaning. Seek instead to encourage others to come along, and you'll
find the journey much more fulfilling.
When you hurry through each moment, you miss out on the richness that could
be yours. Take the time to live, to experience where you are, rather than
being so obsessed with getting to the next checkpoint.
When you stop demanding to have it all now, you'll discover that you have
plenty already. Learn to experience joy where you are, and you'll
experience it in abundance.
Yes, it can be wonderfully exhilarating when life is moving quickly. But do
not move so quickly that speed becomes your only experience, for there is
so much more to enjoy.
The terrain of life is filled with wonderful and astounding detail. Slow
down and take in its richness...
"I don't have to be what somebody else wants me to be, and I am not afraid to be what i want to be."
