Are you rushing the day away?
Are you like the average person who finds themselves at one point or another rushing to do this, and rushing to do that? If so, then you are amongst the millions of people who have not realized the importance of taking things nice, slow an easy. Did you know that when you rush, you are raising your cortisol levels and your body reacts in a fight or flight mode? That’s why most people who rush usually end up having accidents because when you put those kinds of feelings out into the universe… the feelings that everything needs to happen right now! Car accidents happen… Falls happen… etc… If you are not willing to wait and have an easy process through life, you are actually trying to rush life, however, no matter how much you try to rush life, it cannot be rushed. Nature cannot be rushed.
Nature will not allow you to rush it.
Just take a look at the trees for example, they grow at just the right time, the grass grows when in its own time. And the flowers bloom when they are ready. Have you ever read the story of Frog & Toad? There is a chapter in the book where Toad wants his garden to be as pretty as Frog’s. So he planted seeds. He would yell at the seeds every day by putting his head to the ground and yelling
“Seeds, Hurry up and Grow!” “Hurry up and Grow!”
This is how most of us are. We want everything to speed up according to our anxious nature, our anxieties and worries. We would rather be so consumed with everything happening for us right now that we are not willing to wait for the abundance and the prosperity that comes from planting seeds on good soil, cultivating it and watching it grow in due time…Toad’s flowers eventually grew into a beautiful garden but it wasn’t until he left them alone and let nature do what she does so beautifully. She doesn’t need our help and like I stated earlier, she will not be RUSHED.
Are you rushing life? Is this you? Is this how you are treating your business? Do you want to make $25,000 per month now and you just started your business last month? Are you not willing to wait and plant and plant and plant some more until you see the fruits of your labor come into fruition? Slow and steady wins the race. You will see the increase in your business. You will see the abundance. Just remember that it is the process that makes it all worth while. If you find yourself rushing to that next appointment or rushing the kids out of the door in the morning off to school, I advise you to take a deep breath and think about the fact that it is the process that is meaningful, not so much the destination. Spend those extra few minutes talking and connecting with your children. Leave a little earlier for that appointment and take the scenic route on your way there.
The next time you take the dog out for a walk, don’t rush him to do his business. Let him sniff around and allow yourself to take a stroll around the block and take in some fresh air. Pets feel that energy if you are stressed out and rushing. It makes them nervous and stressed also. Whatever you put out into the universe, comes back to you, so if you are putting out Fear, Anxiety, Neediness etc… be mindful of that and change… Start putting out Love, Start putting out Abundance, Start putting out Awareness. It is in your awareness of your surroundings that ultimately take you where you want to go. Don’t take any moment for granted by rushing through it because when you rush, you are missing the point of life. When you rush you are actually making time work against you instead of working for you. The Divine Being (God) has designed nature perfectly to work in harmony . So, my message for you today is to Stop Rushing Through Life. Like the old cliché goes… “take the time out to smell the roses while you still can”- unknown.
The next time you go for a drive, drive safely, don’t honk the person in front of you, if you take the bus… don’t run for the bus, leave a little earlier if you have to, and all the while you are in motion, I encourage you to look around and see the beauty that beholds this life.
Have a Wonderfully Healthy & Successful Day
