Slow Down!

Press the slow button. If you find yourself rushing around doing a never ending list of one thing after another…press the slow button. You think you don’t have time. It’s all in your imagination. Stop and talk. Stop and have a drink. Stop and watch the birds. Let others carry you through for a little bit and just enjoy their company. Allow yourself to be open to the things others can offer simply because they are there. If you don’t pay attention to yourself and them you get caught up in the mouse wheel and you just run and run. You become exhausted. You don’t want to know the people you care about and you don’t want to do the things you love.You have no fun.Press the slow button. It still gets done and it gets done more easily. It’s a mental trick you have to learn because the perception is nothing will get done unless you go fast.



Retired Adelaide based professional. Lived here most of my life. I have been a teacher of French, English and German since 1974 and value the capacity of the classroom, wherever that might be, to write on the lives of others.
