Don't be in a hurry.

We can't have everything we want right away, all at once.

Don't be in a hurry. There's always a process, and that can take years—of trying, of learning, of stumbling, and of moving forward. It may be long, but it's a process that can be enjoyed.

Don't be in a hurry, because that will only make the run exhausting and remove from it the fulfillment in learning. Run when you're filled with energy and momentum and it feels like you're being carried by the wind. Walk when you have to reflect, to think, to process. Skip when music and inspiration fill your mind, or playfulness fills your heart. And pause when you want to take in the details, when you want to watch the flowers and leaves dance, when you want to celebrate your wins or simply appreciate the little things.

Don't be in a hurry. Embrace the process and turn it into something you look forward to everyday.
