Back again today with another in the series of living YOUR ideal life. I hope this series is helping you find and define an ideal life for yourself. The peace I live in life is the fact that this life is ideal to what I want to live. But in the ideal life sometimes things dont always happen when you want them to. Today we learn what to do in those times.

 BEEEEEEE PATIENT

I'm in a hurry to get things done, I rush and rush until life is no fun. What I really got to do is live and die, but I'm in a hurry and don't know why.  Alabama

This is the chorus of a great song by Alabama, the country trio who named themselves after the state they're from. The song is on my playlist of motivational songs that I'll get to later.

We only get one chance on this earth, so why are we rushing through it? When I was chasing dreams other people told me I needed to have, I always found myself trying to get things to happen today. I wanted it and wanted it now. I soon found out that if you take a step back in life and plan, you can get most of what you want, with less effort, and in a shorter period of time. If you want to become self -employed, take 2 years and plan it out. If you want to be married for life, take time and plan out a marriage together instead of a wedding for 3 months because life is longer then the wedding. If you want to raise your children to be free-thinking leaders, then take the time to teach them step-by-step till they get it.

In the past 10 years of my life I've buried 2 close friends. One was in his 30s, chasing after so many different things at once that he was always stressed out. The other was a man in his 50s who died in my arms, yet when you looked at his life, you could see he was at peace with where he was, what he was doing, and where he was going. He died doing one of the things he loved most: riding his motorcycle with the love of his life, his wife, arms wrapped around him. Life is short, don't rush through it. Learn to live each day to its fullest Don't worry about the things of tomorrow for they will worry about themselves.

Both of them died, but the lives they led and the peace they had in life was very different. I miss Richy and Elton very much these days. Both taught me so much in the short time I spent with them here on this earth.

I hope you have learned when to be patient and when to be in a hurry. Its not the big plans that you will someday do, its the little things you can get done today that will matter. Join us tomorrow when we talk about LOVE.

      I’ve know the stressed out, impatient, anxious, frantic peeps–I don’t get them. I try to get them to slow down a bit, think about the stuff their stressing over…will it make a difference in a few years? Sometimes it works, sometimes is doesn’t…at least I feel I planted a seed!
