You Can’t Rush Art
- by Yazmin Zepeta, Think Twice Educator Your life right now, it’s a process... I’m here to tell you that you’ll get everything you want in life and things will work in your favor if you just simply trust the process.
There might be this thing you want right now. You want it so bad. So bad that you would even rush to get there. And that right there is the mistake we all tend to make. Rushing things and stepping in when it isn’t our time and place can only result in receiving something we don’t want.
This is very similar to speeding while driving. You know you will eventually get to your destination, but you just urge to get there already because you’ve been on this drive for a while now. You decide to push the gas a little harder to speed up the trip. A sheriff catches on and pulls you over. Now, not only are you delayed from your destination, you carry weight from it because he gives you a ticket. This all could be avoided if you learn to enjoy the ride for what it is.
It’s for sure, what’s for you, will come towards you in due time. Time is only an illusion. Everything in life is happening all at once. Whatever you want in the future already exists. This means that we don’t need to add excess pressure towards the things we want. It also means we reap what we sow. As long as we are on route and making daily efforts towards positive things, we can reach our ultimate goals.
Every day is a new opportunity to add to the work of art in our life. When we take each moment with intention and dedication we will eventually reach our destination.
Similar to art, life is not something only meant to complete but to experience as well. When we are working on a project, our best work comes from detailed laborious work. Art is about how much effort we dedicate towards something. The struggle we put forward is what makes art/life beautiful and worth it in the end. If we keep in mind that the finished product is already there then there is nothing left for us to do than enjoy the work to get to there.
Trust the process, do the work, and let things come when it’s time. That’s how you get what you want.
Nothing worth having comes easy. - Theodore Roosevelt
