This is a concept I’ve always struggled with. I’ve always felt the need to rush things, because I want what I want right now. I can’t waste time waiting. But this mindset is flawed. There is never a lack of time. Time is constant, limitless, infinite. It will go on after me just like it went on before me. I have all of the time in the world. It’s what I do with that time that matters. If I am happy in these limitless minutes, was that time really a waste? It’s only when I uphold myself to certain standards that I’m unhappy.
I’m not a straight-A student. My bank account is meager. I have not found the love of my life. My arms are jiggly. There are so many skills I haven’t learned yet.**************** I don’t need a perfect GPA, because I love to learn. I don’t need money to be rich, and I will never go without my basic needs. The love of my life is waiting out there somewhere; meanwhile I can love myself and experience the unconditional love of my family and close friends. My triceps might jiggle, but my biceps are amazing and I can do an upward dog like nobody’s business. I have sooo many skills already and plenty of time to learn more.
It’s funny how a simple change of mindset can make everything look bright and shiny.
