I am going to start a new weekly post called “Coach’s Corner” to support my team members through a challenge called TERRAfit.

Food for Thought
This passage is from the book “Journey to the Heart” by Melody Beattie
Why Hurry Through?
“Why Hurry through a day, an hour, a life?
Hurry never catches up with itself. It misses out. It strains. It stresses. It doesn’t trust the natural rhythm, the natural order, of the universe. Slow down. Tap into the rhythm of the world. Tap into your rhythm as you dance through life, as you dance through eternity.
When we hurry, it is as if we are dancing out of step to the music. We become out of sync. Our body strains and stresses. We stop enjoying life. We are too busy hurrying, racing blindly to somewhere, anywhere. We hurry so fast that when we get there, we don’t take the time to enjoy it. We simply hurry on to the next moment.
Step in time to the music- the rhythm or your soul. The rhythm will lead you where you want to go. It will take you through all the tasks that need doing. It will take you down the road to spiritual growth, healing, fulfillment, and joy.
And you’ll have more fun
going there because you
weren’t in a hurry.”
I am guilty of this for sure! I need to learn how to be more present. I spend a lot of time in the past and in the future. The present is such a gift and there will never be this exact moment again in our lives! This weekend and the coming week, I challenge you to live more in the present and bask in it’s beauty. We are all in this exact moment for a reason so will you miss it or will you take full advantage?
Have an awesome weekend!
With much love and support,
