Nature Does Not Hurry….

I saw a quote last week by Lao Tzu that read, “Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”  It really resonated with me because I am a college student, and even if you are not a college student, I am sure that you are also busy juggling a million balls at once.  While I am only eighteen, I am sure that as time passes this isn’t something that is going to change; which leaves me with the question of, “How on earth do I go about balancing everything?”  More often than not, I find myself rushing from one task to the next, and one place to the next.  What is so interesting to me is that when I go about my day like this, even if I check off everything on my to do list, I feel as if I wasted my day because I was not present.  Taking time to communicate with ourselves and appreciate all that is around us isn’t worth sacrificing to check something off our never ending list of tasks.  I always feel a bit silly when I stress myself out over the littlest things, because somehow, everything always gets done and turns out okay.  This is why I love the quote above so much!  I’m really trying to keep it in mind right now, especially with finals coming up.  It is also something I am going to hang up in my room as a reminder to slow down and enjoy life.

Thank you so much for reading, and please feel free to leave your thoughts in the comment section!

Much love,
