You're the one driving in your life, and if you don't realise it, most of the time you are on the accelerator pedal. Try using the brake pedal every now and again, because it's important to slow down from the higher gear.
If we're living in the higher gear for so long, we'll never be able to experience what life has to offer to us fully. And in situations of stress, anxiety and "high gear" driving, we'll never be able to fully grasp compassion, love, happiness, appreciation and fun. What we will get is frustration, annoyance and impatience.
To experience life, you've got to tune in to the pace of nature which as Ralph Waldo Emerson said is patience. There is always a choice to make in every situation life has to offer. Choose to use the brake pedal and slow down in your life so you can see life for what it truly is.
I like Eddie Cantor's quote: "Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast — you also miss the sense of where you are going and why."
