The morning light casts itself upon the day. As I sit on the covered front porch and watch the hurried world drive by, I wonder ‘what’s the hurry?’

Oh yeah, I remember the need for speed from back in the day when I knew one pace … fast. Then the farmer came showing me how to balance it all out by living in alignment with the cycles of earth … fast, slow, fast, slow in an integrated speed up, slow down pace.

My speed and busyness seemed important, even critical. In hindsight, I know it was about my identity of efficiency, productivity, and worth. It was about self-importance.

I’m in charge of my own schedule now so the crazy busyness could be over. Yet sometimes I struggle to fully embrace the balanced pace and overbook, overcommit, overextend. Do you ever do that?

If so, try these affirmations:

I embrace my true pace.

I enjoy wiggle room in my days.


I like to be efficient and productive.

Imagine living with efficiency and wiggle room in balance. Let me know how it goes.
