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 just maybe… could even try to do something special to get “that “TIME” of the day to move faster and just keep moving faster, and then we could really have something to do?
When you are little, and I’m guessing this goes for all little “SMART and Little TIKES” – that’s the class of “SMARTIES” that we thought we were in – and we had to get the world to move… just a wee bit faster?
So now, I’m putting my foot down on the “BRAKES” of time – we do need to slow down “TIME” – it’s just going too fast – I cannot keep up with what I need to get done in just one (24) hour day!
I find myself complaining about things that are not getting done, especially… since I am either just too slow… and or this day is just going too fast!
There is so much that I have – that is … that I want to read, and if I take the 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 much longer day and or a much faster me?
In reading … something that may just seem to be that which … I really need to read – something to inspire me to stop all of this complaining about … that which, I cannot change and think more about the blessings… that I have received, and ask blessings on everybody and everything… that is requiring just a little more time… than what I can give… at that time!
In other words… just learn 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 “body” being used today… has already used up the best of its energy a long… long, time ago.
So, I am doing a better job, because I am “blessing” everyone around… as I go, and 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 – more so… than in the past.
I just “LOVE” blessing everyone as I go –
You know that… “what you say is what you get back” –
… and getting all those “BLESSINGS” is the best part of this day’s journey!”
