When I was headed to workout this morning I had a bit of a delay crossing a major intersection. Luckily for me, I looked at the time when I first stopped. I waited and waited and waited and waited and waited and waited. I waited some more and then even more. I was just about to cross over and then several cars dotted by again blocking any chance to get to the other side. I was just about to get frustrated with all this waiting but then there was an opening and I crossed the street.
I drove about a half mile down the road and started thinking about this. I looked at the clock and that really got me thinking. Two minutes had passed from the time I stopped until I was already across the street. JEEEZ! 2 Minutes? Seriously, that is not long at all. All this got me thinking. Why do we have to be in such a hurry all the time. 2 minutes, I still can’t believe that I was starting to get anxious in that short of a time. Really, 2 minutes!
I am so grateful this happened to me this morning. It was a good reminder to SLOW down and get with the flow. Stop trying to rush through life. I say enjoy the ride and take time to experience the beauty that is all around us.
