I enjoy a wide variety of music from classical to rock to gospel. My daughter likes Country & Western, so that's what we listen to on the way home from school. The other day I heard a song that mad me laugh. The chorus was:
I'm in a hurry to get things done
Rushin' rushin' till life's no fun
All you really have to do is live or die
I'm in a hurry and don't know why.
"That's me," I said. "That's me during deadlines!" Since then I've been humming that song in my head. Especially today. I thought once I got past the yearbook deadline, my life would slow down, but I'm still "rushin' rushin'"
I had rushed all morning and it was almost time to leave for school. I had been starving at 10:30 and had eaten carrots and almond butter as I worked on other things. I needed a green vegetable and I needed meat. There was chicken left from last night's dinner, but no vegetables and no time to cook anything.
I had one kohlrabi, but no lemons to make kohl slaw. I grated the kohlrabi, tossed in some chopped chicken, and made a dressing of concentrated pineapple juice and olive oil. I know it sounds weird, but it was sweet and tasty and filling. It contained three beneficials and a neutral meat. And it was fast! I only wish I had taken the time to sit down and eat in a leisurely manner, as Live Right recommends for Type O.
As I rushed to the car, I was again humming that chorus in my head. I think the reason I like the song is that it makes me smile. It reminds me to slow down and enjoy life. It reminds me that I don't need to rush; my times are in God's hands.
