As the lrics state; “Slow down…you move to fast…”/
Everybody is in a rush to get somewhere, but really where? Why the rush? Even marketers are in a rush to rush us. Christmas stuff started appearing in stores in July. The whole month of October has been simultaneously filled with advertisements and store decor everywhere for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Kids are trying to appear older while adults are trying to look like their kids. Why do we have to continually “keep up with the Jones’. When do we live in the moment and appreciate what we have right now. Have you ever noticed how nature has a natural rhythm throughout the year? Do you ever wonder if there is a link between our rat-race lifestyles and why we are at an all-time high for certain health problems? What are the prices you pay for constantly living three hours, 3 days, 3 months ahead of right where you are at in this moment? Are you mistakenly thinking that you don’t have time to slow down? Are you waiting to get around to it, vacation time that might not occur, an unforeseen health problem or life tragedy, retirement? Nobody will make time for you to slow down, except YOU. What will it take for you to slow down?
