In recent years, I’ve learned much more than ever in my life. By that I don’t mean that I went to some special schools, on the contrary, my school was my life. I learned to slow down, not to skip, not to slip. I learned that there comes a time for everything. That was one of the hardest lessons for me. No school teaches you that. I’m thinking more and more about how much we’ve unnecessarily learned in schools and how much we’ve failed to learn. And I’m sorry about that. There Comes A Time For Everything
There Comes A Time For Everything
Impatience and I were good friends, we hung out often and it was always to my detriment. And then I learned to say goodbye to it because it’s a wonderful feeling to find peace and to realize that patience is not an ally, because it delays life. If someone or something is meant to be, it will be. Why would I, waiting for what I greatly desire, forget all the other blessings that surround me? So just knowing that no one can take what belongs to us, with confidence in life, is enough to fully experience the true moments that are there. Craving for something that is not there, wanting so much of it, looking in only one direction, resisting this now, distrust and non-submission, we can lose much in our lives without even being aware.
Embrace Confidence And Indulgence
Let’s allow life to gift us. Let’s not expect big things from it, and have no confidence. Trust and indulgence are not a sign of your own powerlessness, as many like to interpret. On the contrary, we can recognize people who have convened anywhere. They radiate, peace comes from them, they speak with a smile, they are kind, they listen, they understand. We can almost see the light that comes within them. They embraced and got to know themselves and life.
First of all, it is not possible to be calm and confidential without embracing your own self. On the contrary, weakness is to live by force. How many times did it happened to us to accomplish what we’ve been eagerly anticipating, and then realize that that’s not it? Did it then pay off for a whole chunk of time and life to yearn for something that wasn’t it in the end?!
There Comes A Time For Everything
There must be a time for everything. I wish I had learned that wisely, but I admit I didn’t. I learned this through my stumbling and suffering. If I’m sure of something today, then it’s that everything in my life will come and nothing can happen sooner or later. Everything comes only when you’re ready. It can be right in front of you, but if you’re not ready, it won’t come to you! No way. It’s enough for each of us to remember when something was “safe” and it slipped right out of our hands. That’s what I’m talking about. When we in wonder say, “I can’t believe it!”
Lately, I have a slight smile on my face when I see people constantly racing with themselves, with the clock, with other people, with various demons. They cry and complain that life deprived them of many things and that they always wait unjustly. I get the feeling that we’re growing old while “waiting for Godo” and we forget that what gives us wings and what makes us walk above the ground is far from all our bad moods. Maybe that big luck is beside us, but we didn’t notice it, and that’s because we didn’t look away, we didn’t pay attention…
Simplicity Is Important
When we learn certain things, they bring us joy as if we were kids. Almost scared of what would happen if we didn’t … You’re afraid of intense feelings left behind that were faithful companions of mismanagement and misunderstanding of life. For years, I thought it was wisdom to know everything, but it was the opposite. Travel peacefully, absorb with openness, breathe easily and learn. Simplicity is not wrong.
It’s wrong for us to think so. We are automatically, acquired, en masse, directed that only great effort, terrible philosophy, and complicated things can bring us a solution to any challenge that comes before us. And it’s not like that. Being simple is enough to get us where we want to be. It’s very important.
And it’s important to know that no one can take what is ours. Maybe we just have wishes, goals or plans that are not our way. Happiness is in letting go, living our purpose, realizing that life is just not a straight line that we will blindly follow, and so on. If we realize in time that there is a moment for everything and that life is a challenge and a change, then this journey will be a realization for us, happiness, joy, and peace.
There is one great oxymoron saying in Latin that often comes to my mind, it says: “Festina lente! – Hurry up slowly!”
