Thursday Thoughts: Universal Hurry Up

I had a phone “visit” with my editor yesterday and we both commented on how time seemed to be in a weird time warp or slip. That it shouldn’t be mid-March but barely January. At the same time, each day seems to drag until it’s tomorrow and then I wonder where the time went. Today’s message from the Universe is in the same vein. It’s true, when I’m in a big hurry, things happen that slows me down–both external and internal. Internal in the sense that I goof up and have to start over, or I miss things that I find later and it takes longer to fix than it would have if I’d noticed and corrected the situation in the first place.

Have you noticed that the more you hurry, the slower you go?

The more you wait, the longer it takes?

The more you worry, the less you dream?

But the more you live, love, and laugh, Silver, the more you live, love, and laugh.

Loving you like bees love honey, Silver. And bears….

That whole more worry, less dream is totally true when it comes to me. Stress has that same affect and to be an effective writer, I need that dream time. I need to make time to live, love, and laugh more because those things make life worthwhile, makes the words flow from my imagination through my fingertips to the keyboard and ultimately to the monitor. And I’ve decided I need more bears in my life. Just because. What are you loving today?

  1. Yep. Whenever I have tons to do, there never seems to be enough time to do it. But when I have nothing to do, I have all the time in the world. And when I’m waiting on something, time drags so slow I want to scream.

    Right now, I’m loving my coffee. And Hubs. Of course, he made the coffee and brought me a cup, so he gets extra loves this morning. ;o)
