I had a thought yesterday that could be defined as an aphorism. In my own life, it is so true.
I am always in a hurry to get things done, and I don't know why. I'm rushing about, but I have no set goal that I'm working towards, and I worry that the stress of living the way I do will kill me at a relatively young age.
I thought to myself, “If you run the race too fast, you will reach the finish line too soon.” Basically, I'm rushing through life only to meet my death quicker.
I hadn't really realized this before, but once that thought came to me, I knew I needed to slow down. Otherwise, my life will be over before I know it, and I will not even be able to say that I enjoyed it.
