Ripples #933: Slow Down!
Apr 10, 2017
Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
-Eddie Cantor, shared by Holly in Phoenix, AZ
In an age of speed, I began to think nothing could be more exhilarating than going slow. In an age of distraction, nothing can feel more luxurious than paying attention. And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting still.

Let’s keep it short and simple this week, shall we? Take a deep breath, and then take another. Consider carving out some time in your schedule to slow down for a few minutes, or maybe even (gasp) a few hours.
There are lots of good reasons that we get into a mindset of, “go, go, go.” Believe it or not, there are some even better reasons to experiment with a mindset of, “slow, slow, slow.” Try it and see.
