Oh no! Half of the month is gone and I have not achieved much.
This is a constant complaint that I hear from people including myself. Sometimes, it appears that things are moving too fast. Our immediate response is to speed up, get worried and feel overwhelmed.
I felt exactly that way last week as I had some projects with the deadlines approaching. However, I got a reminder lesson from my son about what to do when time seems to fly by.
My son had a school task set at the start of the week. It was such that the students were meant to log into the site to complete some calculations and the person on the top of the leader board got a price. Being naturally competitive in nature, my son worked hard at it and I encouraged and supported him on the way. When he got to the second place on the leaderboard, he wanted to stay up late into the night to push through to first place. I explained to him that his sleep was important and if he had an early night sleep, he could wake up early to work towards getting to the top of the leaderboard. Thankfully, he agreed.
The next morning, I found myself quite excited to wake him up because of the desire he had to get to the top of the board. When he woke up, I asked if he wanted to get onto the task, he responded with a smile, 'No thank you Mummy, I am happy where I am now because I enjoyed the process of getting there.' At that moment, my heart melted. That was a true fact.
I immediately thought of the deadlines that were causing me to feel overwhelmed and I decided to be thankful for where I am now and enjoy the process as I move forward.
Time may pass quickly, we may have a target we want to reach but what should give us happiness is the process of getting to where we are now. With that calmness, we can enjoy the process of taking the next steps to where we want to be.
Try not to fret when time passes quickly. Enjoy the process and see the fruit it yields.
Be you! Stay connected!! Grow into abundance!!!
