Slow Down You Move Too Fast

Alone time.

 

Never quite enough of this.

 

Quiet.

Calm.

 

A slowing down.

 

Even on a holiday we tend to pack it in.

 

The big list of things to see.

 

There is something to the unplugging that brings clarity.

 

Brings creativity.

 

New ideas.

A different perspective.

 

This isn't a luxury.

It's a necessity.

 

For busy parents sometime it's simply, a shower.

 

The calm early in the morning or late at night when everyone is sleeping.

Time on the treadmill.

A swim in the open water.

Zoning out to your favorite music.

A 10 min walk around the block.

 

It is a must do.

 

It IS a must do.

 

It's hard to fine the time.

 

But do try, ask for it, demand it.

 

Do you want the epitaph on your gravestone to say

 

She worked all the time?

Never stopped looking at his laptop.

Always too busy too wrapped up.

 

Be a little selfish

No.

Actually be utterly specific about your need for this.

 

You may find that your next big idea, best moment ever comes

 

from that sweet time with just big beautiful wonderful you.

 

Which makes everyone around you feel your joy.

 

Aren't we all worth it?

 

I think we are.

 

Do it.

 

Today.
