The rush of our modern lives has one single purpose: enjoy as much as we can while we’re alive. After all, life is short, would say a non sense, narrow minded person. Those that have some sense, do not have the courage to live from the understanding that life is what we make of it. The worst poison from this shortsighted vision is that we create a belief that opportunities pass. Another non sense. We create our reality, so we create as many opportunities as we want. If one chance has passed, no worries, I create another one. However, we prefer to cry over the spilt milk.

If someone could have done something but didn’t, do it now. Or Is it easier to regret and feel as a victim of chances? We rush ourselves and we remain shortsighted, we do not see anything beyond what already exists only in our heads. The time race only works so that we are driven by it, and yet science knows since Einstein that time is elastic. This is a simple way of saying that our attitude towards life is what will determine if we will make it on time to do anything we want or not.

We are not here to grow old but to grow up. For this, it is necessary to learn how to wait the maturation of things. As simple as getting a fruit from a tree, in order to be sweet, you need to wait until it is ripen. Act as if you had all the time in the world and that is exactly what you will have.

Nature does not hurry and yet everything is accomplished. Take care of the cause and control the effect.
