Hello Friends! Happy Friday.
We are all in such a hurry sometimes. We want to hurry and lose weight, hurry and write a book, hurry and write a blog post. We are so stuck on this whole “life is short” thing that we sometimes just forget that it’s okay to take our time. It’s okay if you don’t get published next year or finish reading all the books you want to read.
Another thing that I have noticed in the book community is how people brag about how fast they read. “Oh, I read 100 pages an hour.” And this really annoys me! At first it made me feel horrible because I don’t read that fast. I am lucky to read 40 pages an hour. I am a bit of a slow reader and I am okay with that.
In the end, the important thing is that we are consistently working towards our dreams and goals. There is a saying that says “it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.” So why are we all in such a rush to get through the journey?
Slow down friends. Find joy in the ride and don’t give up. Life may be short, but if you are in a hurry to get to the destination, that short life isn’t enjoyed like it should be.
