Ever get the feeling that someone's trying to tell you something?
Monday was one of those days. I had too many balls in the air and too many things went wrong for it to be a coincidence. Then to top it all off, I ended the day with a speeding fine.
As I crashed into bed, I thought that maybe there was a message in all this madness. Maybe I needed to slow it down. Let go of the details. Allow things to flow.
Gretchen Rubin of the Happiness Project says it perfectly, "Take your time. Especially when you're in a hurry."
It seems my day from hell was reminder that I need to stop rushing through life. I need to cram fewer things into my day; stop multi-tasking and eat, drive and walk slower if I'm to ever have a chance at truly living in the moment.
Maybe receiving the speeding fine wasn't so bad after all....
