Are you missing something?
When I was a little girl, and that’s been a long time ago, it seemed to me that “TIME” just stood still. I can remember sitting on benches with some of my little friends, and we were talking about – “How long do we have to wait for supper?” We also were saying, “The clock just is not moving – how do ‘we’ get the clock to move faster?”
It was as if we did something or could, even try to do something that – TIME – would move faster and we could have something to do? When you are little, and I’m guessing this goes for all little “SMART TIKES” – that’s the class of “SMARTIES” and or maybe even – know-it-all – smarty-pants – wiseacre , and the NUNS’ would call us a “saucebox” – just because, they thought that we thought, we were in a higher class of smart people – and we had to get the world to move faster – because, we were wasting too much “TIME” just sitting around, sometimes!
So now, I’m putting my foot down on the “BRAKES” of time – we need to slow down “TIME” – it’s going too fast – I cannot keep up, with what I need to get done in one (24) hour day! I find myself complaining about things that are not getting done, especially since I am either too slow or the day goes by too fast!
There is so much that I have to do – that I want to read, and if I take time to just sit and read – the day is shot – all gone? And, I have a whole list of stuff, which just has to wait for another day – hopefully a longer day or a faster me? In my reading of something, that just seem to be exactly that which, I needed to read – it is inspiring me to stop complaining, about what I cannot change, and think about the blessings that I have received, and ask blessings for everybody and every thing that is requiring more time, than what I can give at that time! In other words – I have to realize, that as one gets older, one must also learn to slow down.
Today, we are on a very fast journey, which is turning into a “rat race” – and this older “body” that is being used today – has already used up the best of its energy a long time ago. So, my change for doing a better job, which is really needed – I am “blessing” everyone around – as I go through the day – I’m finding… that by “blessing” everyone that I meet each day on my daily rounds – I feel like I have more energy and strength to get more done each lovely day – even more so… than in the past.
The mouth can help you – and in this world “TODAY” – this is what you might also like to try – I just “LOVE” blessing everyone as I go – You know that… “what you say – – is what you get back” – and getting all those “BLESSINGS” back, as you are giving them out – is the best part of this day by day journey!”
