Wise people say that hurry is making us sick, body and soul, so I’m trying to quit. Little by little, I’m practicing things like walking slowly and eating slowly, reading slowly and answering slowly. Sometimes I choose to hurry anyway. That’s okay. I just say, “Now isn’t that interesting?” because I can see now that the hurry is usually a habit, not a have-to. That’s still a big improvement over decades of always telling myself the same exhausting thing: hurry.

“Ruthlessly eliminate hurry, for hurry is the great enemy of the spiritual life in our world today.” Dallas Willard

“Stop striving, relax, let go and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
