The Speed of Life.

Life passes at the same time for all of us.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres. We publish pieces 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 though they are reviewed for adherence to our guidelines, they are submitted in their final form to our open platform. Learn more or join us as a community member!

Life passes at the same speed for all of us. One moment at a time. 

We learn to think Life needs to be rushed. We learn to think Life needs to be hurried.  Yet have we ever thought about what we are rushing towards?

When you choose to slow down, you have a chance to see Life. In all its beauty. In all its glory. In all its perfect order. 

Life passes one moment at a time so we can remember to live one moment at a time too. To see how everything still gets done. So we can enjoy what we are doing too.
