Happiness and the Pace of Life

Happiness and the Pace of Life

You must always be yourself, and do things at your own pace. Someday, you’ll catch up ~ Natsuki Tayaka

slow down
As I have gotten older I’ve noticed something about myself, I’ve really started to slow down. I have noticed I walk slower, I drive slower and most importantly I act slower. The result of this, other than annoying drivers on the freeway, is that it allows me more time to think, more time to focus. I may not accomplish as much as I once did but what I get done I believe I get done with more purpose, perhaps even more mindfulness.  It has even left me the space from time to time to have a mindfulness day.

The beauty of a slower pace of living I truly believe is that it allows you to adapt more appreciation for the life going on around you. A cliché perhaps but there is an advantage to slowing down and smelling the roses. The least of which is that you get to smell the roses, and roses quite frankly smell pretty good. So a few resources below, some thoughts by others on the subject, take a little time my friends, slow down a little bit and have a happier day ~ Rev Kane
