For what though? What is this that I am supposed to hurry for? What is so big that I cannot take my time to get to it? WHAT?!
I’m living in a fast paced world. Everything is done fast. Everyone seems to be in some sort of hurry. Even when they’re going to chill. It makes little sense to me. So little! I’m overwhelmed to be honest.
So I’ve decided to slow down. It’s been a while since I did. I need it! You probably do too. I have slowed down almost to a halt. Taking each day as it comes. Living it to the fullest. Even when it’s just a couch day. All that matters is being in the moment. Disconnecting from the world and living in that time. The peace is unrivalled.
Ever had a conversation with someone where you just listen? You keep quiet, let them talk, and say what’s on their chest? You don’t have to reply, you’re just there to listen. You have? Now have you ever paid attention to the feeling you get after they’ve talked? If you care about this person enough, it’s always a sense of fulfillment. The fact that you’ve been there for them when they wanted to talk. I love it.
I close my eyes and get lost in my own world.
The sun rays gently caressing my skin.
They make me smile.
I think about different things, my life, where I am from, where I’m going. The things that keep me grateful and thankful for the life I have.
I may not be where I want to be but I’m working on things slowly. Taking my time whenever I can.
Some are in my mind, some on paper. Some have even materialised into the physical realm.
I cannot complain, I cannot be bitter. I can only be thankful for the journey I’m on.
Does this make sense?
It does to me, and that’s all that matters in this day and time. 🙌🏾
