Impatience

I was out walking my dog earlier this morning when a strange event occurred. For those of you who don't know, I live right next to Courtside, a type of sports club. I was walking by the entrance that opens up onto Winchester Boulevard, when a women driving a car sped out onto Winchester at about 25 miles an hour. As I looked back, I realized that if she had waited, I would've passed her. She couldn't stand to be there a moment longer, and risked her life because of it. Winchester was full of cars, and she barely avoided being pancaked. It made me wonder, if life is so rushed, if it moves so fast, why are we speeding it up? You should enjoy every moment, not just hasten to the next thing. Life is short, so why spend it speeding around? You have obligations, I get it. But they can wait another 3 seconds. So the next time you rush, think about why you're doing it. Maybe you can wait those 3 seconds, and not be living in the fast lane.
