Take your time, hurry up

1me16

Last night, as I checked on my beautiful boy, now so grown up, I noted again that time has raced by yet he still looks like my baby when he’s asleep.

Having a child with Autism, those sleep times give you some much-needed downtime and perhaps, a curious understanding of time and dimension, hmm, or maybe that’s too many years of Doctor Who.

In this frenzied world, we need more compassion, appreciation, and hope; less rushing, lies, and bullying. Maybe we don’t have time to stop and smell the roses, but I hope we can at least notice the roses are there.

  • The best time to take a deep breath is when there’s no time. At the end of your life, I doubt you’ll look back and think, thank goodness I spent my life like a hamster on a wheel, that was sooo fulfilling.

  •  Stop flogging yourself for mistakes. They happen. Learn from them. So you write or say the wrong thing. Fall in love with the wrong person. Press the wrong button and start a nuclear war, ok, that example is pretty much the worst mistake ever, try not to do that one. Time moves forward for a reason, so should you.

  • 1me10I think you can be happy with or without money. Money just makes life easier, not always better. Stop trying to buy your way to happiness or keep up with the Kardashians. If you’re coveting someone else’s stuff, you’re not focusing on you and those you love. You can’t be happy doing that.

  • Don’t get into friendships or relationships (or stay in them) for the wrong reasons. Do you really loathe your own company that much?1me11

  • Don’t reject someone because you’ve had a bad experience either. That experience taught you something, it had a purpose.

  • Fall apart once in a while. You’re not always “fine”. Sometimes it’s fine not to be fine.

  • Worry is passive and self-indulgent; you’re not enjoying that moment and not letting others enjoy it either.marxbros5

  • Trying to be someone you’re not is like trying to hide a dinosaur in your bedroom, it’s too big, smelly, messy, and extinct. Why be someone else, they’re already doing it.

  • Holding grudges or hating people is a toxic waste of time and energy. Forgiveness isn’t agreeing, you’re just not going to let it poison you or those around you. That includes forgiving yourself too!1me13

  • If we have time to shop, play games, check the internet, go on vacation, go out to dinner, we can spare 5 minutes to vote. An hour to volunteer or help someone. We can’t make a difference if we don’t at least try.

  • Instead of thinking about what you don’t want to happen, think about what you do want to happen.

  • Those who love you don’t need you to explain yourself and pretenders, bullies, or enemies, they’ll believe what they want to believe.1funny103

  1. Love you so much right now! This! This post is the person I am working to be! Learning from the experience. Seeing what bothers me in others is a reflection of something I’m not happy about in me and identifying and working on it. Being happy with who I am right now. Being in this moment!
    And I say all of this as I’ve spent the last hour catching up on reading blogs when I could be doing something to help others.. or better yet, actually working, which is what I’m supposed to be doing! 🙂 LOL

  2. Oh, I do thank you so much for this today. 😀 I wish I could re-blog it, but today is a rare day that I have more than one post already on. 😦 This is a wonderful read today and my favorite by far!

  3. I love your positivity, I feel like a robot most of the time, full of what I have to do and worry! I am sitting in my backyard drinking coffee, zipping through my reader, and your post came up. Not once did reflect back on, my children are in school until 3pm, (🙏, thank you), the beautiful weather today, the squirrel who almost gave me a heart attack or anything else about my laid back easy morning. Your right, just stop and look, I was missing it all, it was right in front of me.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    NIBSIH 😊

    1. Wow, do you mind if I use this as one of the blurbs on my future book? Thank you kindly. 🙂
      I’m always glad when I can make someone ignore a squirrel almost giving them a heart attack (well-played, squirrel, well-played). 🙂
      I hope you have the time to pop next door and join my Blog Party to promote your blog and find others. The refreshments table is to your right or mine, watch it, it has a wobbly leg (bad coding). 😉

      1. I don’t blog, well I don’t technology very well. One of my idiotisms, go for it! Thank you for the invite, I’ll come check it out. 😊

        The deal with the squirrel, he gotten me a few times, always when I am intensely reading something. Little jerk.

  4. I have a niece with autism and being around her does tend to make me more reflective. Although her parents often get anxious about her future, she has inspired other family members to go into psychiatry so I’m sure she will be taken care of and loved. Always love your posts. jan

  5. popped over from the #weekendbloghop and I saw a Doctor Who meme and it instantly caught my eye. I think it’s great to sit back and sit the beauty in things instead of the ugly!
