When we have opportunity to focus on appreciating moment, time is elongated.
So how come we only seem to do this after realizing a major achievement? How come we treat such moments like prized rewards as if we only deserve it as a rare pat on back? Why not give this to ourselves more consistently? Why not practice it as a short break from whatever we are doing?
I'm talking about a form of gratitude I suppose. When we practice momentary, focused gratitude for details of our lives, time stretches.
If you were running 50mph straight toward a brick wall, you'd slow down before you got there, right? Well isn't our grave physiological equivalent of a brick wall? No matter how many impressive projects we complete, end result is same for each of us. So why are we in such a rush to get there?
The busier we are, faster time goes by.
I invite you to stretch time of your life by sprinkling in a few moments of focused gratitude wherever you can.
You won't regret it.
