Life is no matter of urgency – A reminder to enjoy your journey

Enjoy the process of becoming

So I write this blog, as a reminder to myself and any other future wanderers…

I often worry about not achieving everything I plan too. I worry about not being where I should be in life. Anytime I feel I am overthinking into the future, I have to bring myself back to these powerful reminders.

Worry is a feeling whose source almost always lies in the future. It often exposes fears of not achieving or experiencing longed-for hopes and dreams.

“Slow down and everything you are chasing will come around and catch you” ~John De Paula

I hear so much from many great teachers that really, there is no past or future.. all we have is now. today.

“There is no future, there is no past. I live this moment as my last. There’s only us. There’s only this. Forget regret, or life is yours to miss. No other road. No other way. No day but today.
― Jonathan Larson


A great way to manage any of my own overthinking has been mindfulness practices, and not just by following a guided meditation but things that put me in the here and now. painting, dancing, reading, writing, yoga, cooking, Wim Hof breathing method exercises. I am learning more and more that mindfulness is most powerful when you identify what works for yourself personally, anything that gives you a feeling of peace, clarity and enjoyment in the moment. Meditation doesn’t have to require a certain posture or position, meditation is awareness of each moment with a clear and calm mind. A great tool to slow down and enjoy the journey in each moment of your life.

At some point maybe you have hear someone older than you say “Enjoy your life, it goes so fast” or something along these lines..

But yes. It is true, right?

We are all here to enjoy this life, a bit of a cliche reminder – but one I myself often forget when working all of the time towards something. Who we are becoming in the process is the most important thing, really. There is no rush to be anywhere. We gotta trust the divine timing of this life.

I won’t go too much into comparison traps, but I have spoke a lot on previous blogs (see below) on avoiding this trap and owning your own path. However, as a young person/trying to be adult.. and growing up in the age of information I have myself felt how hard it can be to fall in to the comparison trap on where we should be in life. When we view time and age as a source of urgency, well I’m 25 so I should be… or I’m 18 so I should be.. This is a trap. Reminder to self: Trust the timing of your life and follow your own way – Everything you are becoming is unfolding just perfectly.

If you do not find peace within, you will not find it anywhere else. The Goal of Life is the attainment of Peace and not the achievement of power, name, fame and wealthSivananda

Take a tree growing fruits, there is no rush from surrounding trees on when they grew fruits – nature takes place, as should we. Trust the timing of your journey.
