pace yourself

Where are you going?

Why do you want to be there rather than here?

Our mind can carry us away. We look outwards, at things outside of our control, at places we want to go. We rush to get somewhere, constantly future focused, always looking for the next thing to occupy ourselves.

What about now? What can we do right now?

That future might never come. We assume we’ve got a certain amount of time to do all the things we want to do.

And potentially we do.

But there’s no guarantee. Nothing is for certain. Nothing lasts forever.

Just because we’re older doesn’t mean we have less time. Just because we’re younger doesn’t mean we have more.

Forget about hurrying. Find what really matters to you right now and focus on that. Enjoy it.

Pace yourself.
