Time is a funny thing. When we are anxiously waiting for something we look forward to, time seems to stand still. However, when we dread something, time moves at the speed of light.
If given a choice, I prefer a slower pace of life. After my illness and near death almost 2 years ago, I don’t see any reason to rush anymore. I’ve learned to simplify my life and no longer try to rush things. I’ve always been a type B personality and now everything seems fine.
Modern life has enough complications without adding unnecessary stress to the mix. Being kind to myself gives me a new perspective on time and why the pace of life needed to be slowed down.
I have more inner peace than ever. I treasure each moment because I know how close I came to cashing in my chips. I am happy, and as I’m learning, Happiness is a huge step towards Kindness.
5 things I’m grateful for today:
- I am alive
- I still have my mental alertness (most of the time)
- I’m able to appreciate every day
- I have Hal and The Stooges in my life
- I know I am loved
