My Challenge Today:

Slow down and enjoy life …

By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC


 

Slow down and enjoy life.

It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast,

you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.

~ Eddie Cantor

 


 

Slow down and enjoy life ~ enjoy the journey, you truly never know where life is taking you. We don’t have any idea when our life is going to throw us a curve ball, we don’t know what’s coming around the corner and it’s to our advantage to make the most of each moment that we are given. Slow down and enjoy life, make sure to enjoy the scenery and the journey.  Each day we are given another 1440 minutes to invest in our life and health and we can either enjoy that time or not.

 

One of the messages I keep receiving from the universe right now, loud and clear is, does it really matter? In a week or month or year, will whatever it is that is bothering me matter? If the answer is no ~ then let it go! That message resonates with me in the same way as the featured quote — Slow down and enjoy life.

 

I have been described as a … Type A personality, intense, rigid, set in my ways, stubborn, determined … some admirable qualities and some not so much. The idea of looking a little deeper at the present moment irritation is a concept that I wish I had considered earlier in my life and now, I think I get it. I have a tendency to fixate on things and want a resolution right now ~ while this is a great MO generally speaking, it is not necessarily appropriate in all situations.

 

And, that is the lesson of the day for me ~

 

  • Ask myself — will it matter tomorrow, next week or next year?
  • Pick my battles … not everything is worth fighting over …
  • Be flexible, bend like a willow tree …
  • Enjoy the moments, make a life that I want to live!
  • Celebrate today, enjoy what I have and build my future by choice.
