Slow down

This morning as I was driving, I got to thinking about how I always have to pass everyone when I’m driving. As much as I hate to admit it, I may have a wee bit of a lead foot and well, it doesn’t really get you where you’re going any faster. I got to thinking about how I always need to be going faster than everyone around me yet, when I get to the next red light, the car that I passed three miles back isn’t too far behind me. This lead me to think about how I do the same thing going through life. I’m constantly on the go and in a hurry and never take time to just enjoy the moment that I’m in. Life in a big picture is just the same. Some rush through life and have to be ahead of everyone but in all reality, they aren’t too far behind you. They’re just enjoying little things a little more. It’s okay to want more in life and strive to be better than you were yesterday but it’s also okay to just enjoy where you are and take it all in. So tomorrow when I’m on my way to work, I’m going to drive in the slow lane and enjoy what’s around me… and I guarantee that I’ll still make it on time. 😉
