There are going to be days when we have to rush. We have to rush because of earlier choices we’ve made. We’ll watch the clock and wish for more time, but we’ll see it continue ticking away without a care in the world. Time doesn’t stop for anyone, not even you or me. Ever.
When we are faced with a moment like this, we do not need to be discouraged. Even as we watch the clock tick away, we can embrace all of the abilities within us. What we are trying to accomplish will not be our full potential, but in the moment we will give it everything we can.
There is no turning back, only to fail ourselves. Success does not always have to look the way we think it should. Sometimes success looks like a half written paper, or leaving the house with wet hair, or mismatched socks.
Life will rush us, but we don’t have to panic. The clock will continue ticking and we get to be a part of the race. We all have a bag of tricks we save for this moment and we will get it done. Maybe it’s not perfect, but that is what is beautiful about life. We are not perfect and every time we finish something we get to start something new. Maybe the next project will give us more than enough time and we will finish with ease. But for this project, it’s not going to be perfect. This time we will choose to give ourselves grace instead of criticism. We will chose to continue instead of give up.
What have you had to rush though lately?
