Slow down

What patience taught me

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.
Good things take time 

Often times we get so worried about things in our lives, it is like we are going to miss out if we are not going to join the ride of our lives. Thus, we lack the will to wait for the perfect timing and moment. 

If you are in a hurry, the feeling is like you are riding on a train and the key point is to enjoy the ride not to go fast, instead, slow down. This technique is patience.

Just go with the motions and savor the moment of being alive.
