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.

With gratitude,

Bill
