You are moving too fast. Slow down and enjoy the fine intricacies of life.
When you can fully appreciate the beauty in your children, then you are moving at the correct speed. How often do we miss the entire childhood by wishing they were another age only to find that when that age came we wished they were younger? How about simply enjoying them right now! There is wonder and beauty in children of all ages. We must be observant or we will surely miss some golden nuggets of time.
Do you ever see and watch the trees grow? Oh I know you are thinking that this thought is ridiculous but do it anyway. Just sit and watch the trees. As you learn to calm yourself long enough to even consider doing this, you will experience the benefit of lower heart rate and blood pressure. There is no telling what other treasures are in watching the trees grow. Why don’t you watch for a while and then report back to me what miracle happened as you watched the trees grow.
And how about your own incredible existence? Do you ever marvel at your life? Do you ever think back to the time when you were inside your mother’s womb? Go back even further, how about when you were split in two, a sperm and an egg, and through God’s Grace and Mercy you survived the joining and became the Grand Wonderful Person you are today. You can really appreciate your life when you slow down and remember just how miraculous your life is.
The fascinating Universe is another wonder to experience in a relaxed mood. To appreciate the rays from the sun, to allow the beauty of a full moon to brighten your home or to count the twinkling stars at night. To walk in the rain and allow it to totally absorb you and all your cares, then wash them away. Are you getting it now? There is glorious Beauty in moving around purposefully and deliberately, observing with Gratitude all that God has blessed us with.
Today Remember to SLOW DOWN!!!
