Arriving Right on Time ~ Every Time

Commuting to the sound stage 80 miles round trip can be unnerving. Unforseeable traffic snags, endless red lights, and the early morning fog that encapsulates my head sometimes are variables that invite clock combat on the highest levels.

time warpSo I decided to try something new ~ as I motored toward the film studio in hopes of a timely arrival, I decided that the very moment I arrive is the right moment. Not a second too soon, not a second too late. Even as I seemed to hit every red light from the point my decision was made until the entry gate at Bavaria Films, I embraced time as friend.

The amazing part? I arrived in record time.

Ever since I tried my time collapse experiment, the commute seems to get shorter and shorter and infused with more miracles than I care to count. There is something to be said for acceptance. Time abundance can be ours when we choose the here and now as the very place we are.

Every time.

    Yes, indeed…you went with the flow…and the flow agreed with you. I love making it in record time, even if I was rear-ended on the way to the chiropractor this morning. We still made it on time.

    I totally agree with this! Letting go of the anxiety somehow does expand time. I especially try to do this when moving about with small children – letting go of the “we’re going to be late” mentality and just moving through it.

    I hope you are okay! Luckily, you were on the way to the very place that could help in a rear-end situation.

    Moving about with small children is indeed a meditation in ‘letting go’. So glad to know time collapsing and expansion works for you then, too.
