Wise Words... Slow Down!

Monday, June 11, 2012

Slow Down

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.

— Ralph Marston

Don't compare your journey to someone elses journey! Set YOUR goals, and go after them! What works for someone else doesn't mean you will get the same results... you are uniquely YOU.
Our attitude determines how we see the path we are on. We can look at others' good attitude and learn from it.
We only have one path THROUGH this life... let's SPARK it!

    "Don't compare your journey to someone else's journey!"

That is very true!

I remember a good conversation I had with a very close friend. We decided that we can never compare our own journey to someone else's, because not only are we not in the same places on our journeys, sometimes, we are on entirely different paths altogether!
