In the midst of our busy schedules, hectic lives, and never ending stress, it seems life never slows down! Well it’s true life doesn’t slow down, but you can. If anyone knows me or anything about my schedule, you’ll know that I am ALWAYS busy. I, like many other people, always have somewhere to be, something to do and someone to meet. Sometimes I find myself missing the simple joys that life contains because I put so much energy into what I need to accomplish that day. When we die it won’t matter what you made on your final, how popular you were, or how much money you made. The thing that will matter and will be remembered is the small things and the lives you touched along the way. As humans we sometimes view life as a race and we forget to actually live the life we are given. Remember the childhood story the tortoise and the hare? Slow and steady wins the race, don’t hurry through life! Take time for yourself, don’t stress, and love more.
