A Hurried Society

It seems like us Americans are always “in a fricken hurry”…….. “no time for this, no time for that”……… “We are always busy”….Let’s see how much shit can we cram into a 24 hour period?…. We rush into daily life ……Spring out of bed……Inhale our breakfast…….Jump into our cars, and speed down the road to work (after all we are probably running late!)…….When work is done we hurry out the door, and rush to the gym…..Got to get that work-out in……..Hurry…Jump on the treadmill, turn on the iPod, and get running….Get those miles in because then we have to get home and get supper ready! ………..Oh God forbid………..A friend wants to talk……….Conversation is cut short and rudely we “pull ourselves away” …….Got to go! …………Constant movement……Constant noise…….Increased heart rate….Hyper secretion of stomach acids! ……Woh! ……..SLOW DOWN! BREATHE! HEAR THE SILENCE!


Yes……..I am at fault for doing this…………..Life flies by…..Quite often I unintentionally take people and things in my life for granted….Missed opportunities……….Missed relationships…..At times I really don’t think I get to enjoy the gift of life that God has given me………..I am so worried about getting “this” done so I can then move on to do “that”……..None of us know that day or the time that our “number” or those close to us will be called to a “better place”……………..We need to make the time ……TO RELAX…..TO LISTEN …..TO JUST BE!
