taking time

There was once a study of super wealthy people. People who's wealth was beyond the regular
 wealthy and they found that the "word" of these folks was absolutely golden. If they said they were going to do something or be somewhere it was without question it would be done, they would be there. 

One of these folks also did something unique. Every time he gathered with his grandchildren he would read them the same story; The Tortoise and the Hare, the story of how the turtle, by taking his time would be overcome the mighty rabbit. By taking his time, just by being himself. 

Just by being himself. 

Imagine that. 

"be anxious for nothing"  from God's word. simple and poignant. 
The turtle wasn't anxious, just slow and steady. The turtle accepted himself as a turtle, performed like a turtle, acted like a turtle, knew he was turtle and his word was his word. He followed up everything with actions and not words. 

Imagine accepting yourself

For who you are

That's what God does

smell the coffee or whatever it is you like to smell

take slower steps

see yourself for who you are 

see yourself how God sees you

you are beautiful
