Oh yes, I can relate to Laura because I, like her, used to love ticking things off a list, filling slots, and micromanaging the clock. Stress was my “normal” until my body finally gave way and said firmly, “Enough!”
And then everything changed. I took my watch off and have never put one on again. As my life came to a halt, I had time to reflect and then choose to live in a different way. Today, I can choose to live in what I like to call “The Flow.” There is a place that exists outside of time. Some call it the spiritual plane. It’s a place where I am inwardly listening to the voice of the Universe directing my path and quietly suggesting what to do in my next step of the day. If I listen to that voice, everything seems to just flow together and it feels like putting a jigsaw puzzle together.
I have time to stop and chat, look and listen, see and feel. The colors, the sights, the smells, and especially the people around me – all become more vibrant and alive. I live in the present moment, and that present moment is all that matters. Drinking in the peace and serenity, not gulping for air like a drowning woman.
I am not always successful at staying in the present moment and living in the flow, but that is my heart and I live there more and more as my life goes on.
