“Slow Down, Ma’am” Those were the officers parting words after handing me my speeding ticket(s) last month…Not once, but twice. I got two speeding tickets within thirty days of one another which means I have to do driving school. Fun! I got both of these tickets because I was simply preoccupied, had my mind on other things, and was just not paying attention. After paying almost $600- (I know!) in traffic violations yesterday, I really started thinking about how much of our lives are spent speeding through life. I can tell you first hand, that a large portion of my life – until now – has been spent moving way, way too fast. I spend a lot of time being preoccupied and thinking about how my future might play out and also thinking about things that happened in the past, instead of living for today and enjoying the moment. Why do we do this? Why do we spend so much of our time looking to the future and wondering how our lives might be different? Or looking into the past and analyzing how or why things happened the way they did? Or looking back and wishing we could go back change the past…Instead of recognizing that all we really have to enjoy is TODAY – RIGHT NOW?
