As humans we get so caught up in planning our lives that we forget to enjoy the ride along the way. Instead of letting the universe take its course, we doubt our true nature and purpose. Many of us are like birds who don’t even know they can fly so we live our entire lives on a tree branch under the shade, completely oblivious to our own greatness and our capabilities, not knowing that we were made to live life to its fullest and should embrace everything that comes our way. Coming to this realization puts everything in perspective.
We must be willing to trust, let go and let the universe do its part. Know that it is okay not to have everything figured out and enjoy the things that make life worth living for. We tend to want things to happen on our own timing, instead of appreciating the hiccups, triumphs, and simplicity that life has to offer.
We don’t always need a plan. Sometimes we need breathe, trust, let go and see what happens. Slowing down and enjoying the ride is a combination of attitudes and habits. Realize that every moment in life is special. For me that means waking up with a purpose, and engaging in activities that bring me joy and happiness. When we enjoy the ride, we create more fun which can lead to more success. You only have one ride in life, so enjoy it while you can.
