Don’t be so hasty

This is a blog for me. And maybe you can relate.

The meaning of hasty in the English dictionary is ‘[something] done with excessive speed or urgency; hurried’. Are you being too hasty with the things in your life?

I know I certainly can be. We all like results, we all like the finished product, but when it comes to enduring the process, I am sure that many of you would rather not. Me included. Sometimes we can think something is for us – and maybe it is – but we jump too quickly at it and forget all about the right timing. The whole point I’m trying to make is that if you jump on every opportunity with extreme haste, you can end up being counter-productive and maybe even slightly destructive. So many good ideas, good intentions and even good relationships have been completely and utterly destroyed simply because of haste.

Not everything is a matter of urgency, not everything needs to be finished right here and right now. Let things unfold, learn more, trust that one day you will see the manifestation of the time and effort you put in and stop trying to rush the process. Sometimes a clear picture of growth and progression can be just as satistfying as the finished product.

And remember, not every opportunity that presents itself to you is for you. Not every battle is yours to fight. Not every available person is yours to pursue. And not every life is yours to live.

Stay calm, you will succeed in everything that has been set out for you to succeed in. You’re doing well!

Baby Steps: Advice for people who want it all now.

We constantly hear the saying that ‘patience is a virtue’. Sometimes when we envision something, be it a new business idea, a new relationship or even a school project, we plan it all out and rush to finish. Or worse. We plan it out, try to rush it, fail to, and give up all together.

In my life so far I have begun many many novels and in that same life, I haven’t completed a single one of them. I have this massive idea, an epic narrative, the characters planned out, the setting, the climax, the resolution, the ending…. and then it never happens.

This is usually because I want to finish it immediately and don’t trust in the process. What I want to tell you guys is that sometimes the journey is the best part. Getting to know someone, building a buisness or creating the storyline of your novel can be just as refreshing as seeing something completed.

Don’t rush. Trust the process. And take baby steps.

Love Always,
