How are you slowing down to savor?
Not the kind of slow down that is rooted in fear that keeps you from moving forward and toward life. That kind of slow down is like driving 5 miles an hour with safety bumpers and your eyes closed.
The kind of slow down that allows you to drink up life, to notice all the things and people and moments that are composed of what we love.
What are you rushing to? What are you running from?
It’s all here. Now.
The love you seek.
The sunset and stars.
The smile from a child.
Passion. Exuberance. Life in every crevice.
Stop performing so your life can happen later. You are alive now.
Take in your surroundings. Now.
Tell the people in your life you love them. Now.
Stay up all night listening to your favorite songs. Now.
Make plans for that trip. Now.
There’s so much beauty and wonder. Now.
Slow down. Don’t believe and do anything you don’t want to. Live and do it now.
You get to choose how this goes. Choose it now.
