When I found myself lost in my youth, someone once said to me that “the best speed of life is about the speed of relaxed walking”. If it is too fast, you tend to miss many things along the way.
This made me realised that I was spending my time to get to the other side of the cause but I never really remembered what was on the way. I was so focused on my outcomes rather than that journey. I was focused on what I get at the end such as a status, a degree, or a certificate and tend to forgot that there’s hard work behind all these end products.
There’s more to life than increasing its speed.Mahatma Gandhi
Many people said “your journey is more important than what you get at the end.” I think I finally realised the significance of this advise.
When I wake up in the morning, when I see the sunshine, when I see the rain, when I see the scenery, when I meet inspirational people… I will appreciate what I am feeling and experiencing in that given moment. When I feel that I am rushing through daily life, I will remember to stop and look around where I am.
When I feel that I am rushing through daily life, I will remember to stop and look around where I am.
When I am working hard, I will enjoy every moment of that work.
What is your speed of your life now?
Are you missing anything along the way?
