Time to slow down . . .

In life there are times where we simply have to slow down. Stop going so fast. Stop trying to cram as many things into the hour as you can. Stop trying to do everything at once.

So much of life is being missed due to the inability to slow down. People spend so much time on the ‘go-go-go’ that they start getting stressed, their nerves go on end, and relationships with others around them can even start to suffer.  We get tired and grumpy, but we can’t stop so we hook ourselves up to a hypothetical caffeine drip so we can keep go-go-going.

“It’s okay, I’ll rest later,” and “I’ll rest once this is done” are common excuses we tell ourselves to justify why we can’t slow down. In some cases this is true – something is suddenly tossed in your lap and it has to get done right away.  That doesn’t happen everyday. That’s not life.

If you don’t take the time to slow down and appreciate the things around you, if you don’t take the time to enjoy – actually fully enjoy – the things that you have, the opportunity to do so may pass. You may never have a second chance at a missed opportunity.

How many things have you missed simply because you were going too fast?  When was the last time you slowed down to enjoy life?

    When I slow down, the ringing in my ears gets louder and my thoughts race till I settle on just one of those to busy myself with again. *chuckles*
    OR, I run for that cake *peeks over to see if it’s appeared yet* and eat myself into oblivion. *laughs*
