What brought me to write this post?
I was watching out of the window yesterday afternoon, and I saw one of my neighbors cleaning its backyard. It got my attention that he was removing the snow that’s still piled on his backyard one step at a time. In fact, he was using a special tool, just to remove the ice that sticks to the floor, and what got my attention was how paced he was. He pelted just a thin line of snow, like he had a lifetime to do the rest and then he stopped.
Today, I did the same with my daughter in our backyard and it was simple great, just because we did it together and then because I know that tomorrow we will do it again, until that day where all the snow has melted and be gone, and we will enjoy that cleaned space that we treated with care, patience and love.
That has made me wonder:
- How many times have I rushed to reach my goals?
- How many opportunities have I left out by being impatient?
- How am I helping others to get to their goals one step at a time, and embrace the journey?
What if …..
- I pace myself to do everything in life, one step at a time?
- I live in the present moment and embrace the joy of being starting now?
- I focus on the next step I’ll take? What would be possible?
My invitation is to start walking and stop rushing
Now that you know a little bit more about myself, I invite you to take a moment to look around, staying curious, being brave, spreading love to reflect about the following questions:
- What is rushing in your life?
- What needs to be slowed down?
- How do you think your life could be if you take it one step at a time? What would be different? How things could be?
Please stay at home, take a break to relax, keep yourself safe, and remember that:
We are incredibly better together, today more than ever!
