Nelson Mandela once said; Our world is not divided by race, color, gender, or religion. Our world is divided into wise people and fools. And fools divide themselves by race, color, gender, or religion.
We always hear “Slow and steady wins the race”, and though I love this idea. I actually love the idea of slowing down to savor the little moments in life even more. Living in our fast-paced world today, it’s easy to get into a busy routine and sometimes we literally don’t have time to catch our breath. Not only is this not healthy for our bodies and our stress levels, but it takes the joy out of whatever we’re doing.
I’ve found that time goes quickly, and if I don’t stop and slow down, I miss the little moments. So whatever place you’re rushing to or goal you are rushing to get, remember to enjoy the process too, otherwise what’s the point?
When you start to get wrapped up in your busy life, pause, take ten deep breaths, and try meditating or doing something that calms you down. STAY STRONG & STAY CONSISTENT WITH THE WAY YOU ARE. (Not my words).
You don’t have to be religious to be a good person. A lot of people in society believe that, the only way to be a good person is to be religious. And that if you don’t identify with any of the major religions of the world, then clearly you have no values or morals.
While most religions typically have morality at the core of their teachings, morality and spirituality don’t always go hand in hand. You don’t need religion to be a good person. Secular humanists possess ethical values like kindness, compassion and altruism. You don’t need to subscribe to an entire belief system to be morally just.
