fiscal cliff talk is really starting to get on my nerves. I understand the seriousness of it and the need to be informed, but I also believe that the media is showing it to us every 30 seconds as a scare tactic. However, I am not so much concerned about falling off of the fiscal cliff as I am about falling off of the MENTAL CLIFF. Here's what I mean...As Americans we have been groomed to move at a fast pace. If the red lights take too long, we complain. If McDonald's takes too long to fix the fries, we grumble. If our future doesn't arrive in three days, we feel like we've missed our callings or somehow missed the voice of God.
Listen! Don't allow the enemy (or yourself) to push you off of the mental cliff. Don't take life's awe inspiring moments for granted. Don't be addicted to hurry. I've been there (sometimes I'm still here), but what've I learned is that when you slow down in life long enough to allow your MENTAL to catch up with your PHYSICAL, your productivity goes up. You may not get everything accomplished on your to-do list, but you won't be at risk of falling off of a mental cliff either. Take some time to rest, listen, be, chill, unwind, concentrate, and recharge. You'll be glad that you did.
