Hurry, hurry, hurry!
That is the awful, terrible habit that I’ve tried to undo for the last few years. I’m not sure when I picked it up but it is something I suffer from greatly. Really, what good does it do? It just makes chunks of the day a blur. Stupid, really.
While so many of us glamorize how busy we are – we’re often missing out on the greatness of lingering in the presence of beautiful things; things that are sweet and lovely just for the sake of being sweet and lovely.
Do you ever ride around in an area that you’ve been through a million times, maybe even your own town and “discover” something that has hidden in plain sight? What was it that kept it hidden from your gaze, kept your mind from seeing it? Or, what finally woke you up to its presence?
Learn to see. Slow down. Really see what’s there… not what you think should be there.
