Nobody Sees

May All Your Weeds Be Wildflowers
May All Your Weeds Be Wildflowers

Nobody sees a flower, really – it is so small – we haven’t time, and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time. — Georgia O’Keefe

It’s challenging to slow down during the holidays. Who’s got time?

It's All We Have

We Should Have Seen It Coming

We Saw This One Coming Though, Didn't We?
We Saw This One Coming Though, Didn't We?

Time marches on. No stopping it. No denying it. Midlife arrives unannounced, even though we know it’s coming.

Same with a lot of life’s challenges and opportunities.

And yet, we seem surprised at their arrival.

Take politics and the outright ugly, negative campaign attacks. It’s the worst we’ve ever seen. In hind sight, we should have seen it coming.

Rethink Seriously?

Mind, Brain Training

If anything can go well, it will.

Sure beats the tried and true opposite, doesn’t? Don’t even need to tell you, your mind automatically knows which phrase is exactly opposite.

New studies and evidence discard the old brain thinking dogma. That the brain is hard-wired. It can not be changed or altered.

She sent me two interesting links that I feel compelled to share with you:

It All Goes By So Fast

What If We Felt This Way About Our Life?
What If We Felt This Way About Our Life?

Time marches on.

We ignore this out of fear.

We fear it it because it’s unknown.

It’s unknown because we don’t explore it, don’t study it.

Because we are ignorant, we remain fearful.

And because we’re afraid, we set no lofty goals.  No plans to do great work that makes a difference in our world.

It’s like washing our hair.

Lather.  Rinse.  Repeat.

Like going through the motions.

Then we die.

It all goes by so fast.


Be Afraid to Stop

“Be not afraid of going slowly;  be only afraid of standing still”. Chinese Proverb

I just wrote a blog post at jeff about this very subject.  About wondering if now is the right time, if the current approach is the right approach.

This type of potential self-doubt and potential fear, can sabatoge us from breaking through to something we can be great at.  And something we should be great at.  It’s just that we are late bloomers and are playing catch up.

This time delay – from creating a compelling vision – to it actually materializing, takes way longer than most people can comprehend.  This is why people give up and stop,

So, be not afraid of going slow.   Be afraid of stopping.
