Stop Rushing Around, It’s Too Hard on Your Heart – Vol. 410, April 20, 2017
I was having a conversation with one of my clients earlier today about her feeling that she will never have enough time to learn all the things that she wants to learn. She will never have the time to do all the things she wants to do with her life. She is merely 24 years old, and this is the way she thinks.
I remember when I was her age, a little over 30 years ago, and felt that I had to focus on all the things that I wanted to have in my future. I literally made myself sick, pushing so hard to do things, none of which got me the desired results.
We humans were not made to rush around pushing through crowds to get to wherever we feel it is so important to reach. We were not meant to work so hard to get ahead that there is never any time for fun, rest, or reflection.
We humans were made to have “down time” to do those things we find enjoyable, relaxing and peaceful for ourselves – which for some may be time for prayer or some spiritual practice.
Life brings up many challenges, and many rewards. Life will unfold for us very naturally allowing for all sorts of amazing opportunities if we would just stop pushing so hard for that thing we think will make us happy. Because, that thing you are pushing so hard to accomplish – well, it may make you happy for some small amount of time. True happiness and contentment comes from being fine with where you are, as you work diligently at achieving your goals.
One of the amazing learnings I received from my father’s death at the age of 61, was that one has to have more then enough goals for one lifetime. He had a couple of goals for himself and once they were achieved, he didn’t have a reason for living. Goals are necessary to give life meaning. However, by taking a step or two every day, you will achieved them. There is no reason to rush through life believing that the faster you do things the better you will be. That isn’t the way the body operates at its best – that’s the way to stress yourself out and stress isn’t something that we need to add into our lives. Take you time, and enjoy the journey to your goals achievement.
