"There's more to life than Making it go faster"-Wayne Dyer
When I was in college one of my first jobs was at a pharmacy. I’ll never forget the owner asking in my interview if I thought myself to be either an efficient or detail oriented person. I chose detail-oriented. This rang true when I spent much more time than my peers on every. single. task. I humorously remember working so long on a compounded medication the owner said it was mixed ‘more thoroughly than he'd ever seen’.
Eventually I learned that efficiency was the backbone of the pharmacy biz and modified myself to accommodate. But I never felt it was really authentically me. I became very disgruntled and angry at work. At the time I didn’t realize it, but this was the Universe letting me know that I was veering off course. I am made for methodical.
What is it your life is telling you right now? How is the Universe speaking to you about where you are at, what you are doing and who you are doing it with? Do you feel in the flow of your authentic self? Or is life speeding through your present moments to get to some perceived ‘better’ moment in the future?
One trick I use is to take a mental inventory of the moments I feel consistently uncomfortable in my work, home or relationships. The Universe is always sending us smoke signals about our true purpose.
Our true purpose is waiting for us always. One where every moment is precious. Where our dreams are manifested in Joy and live in the simplest of moments. Take a moment. Listen. Sacrifice efficiency for just a bit when you can and allow your authentic dreams to grow. It is the key to unlocking the You that has been waiting for years to bless the world.
