For whatever reason, I generally move fast.
I'll already be in the store before someone unlocks their seatbelt.
I'll have items in the cart
before someone has pulled out their grocery list.
I'll have a blog written, a social media post made ~
maybe while I'm pumping gas.
Generally, no one complains about this...
because society likes fast.
But, I increasingly value SLOW.
Fast can be useful sometimes, but it's often
connected to striving, achieving, doing, even fear.
Fast is usually NOT
allowing, discerning, reflecting and trusting.
Fast may mean you get a lot done >
but was it really things you needed or wanted to get done?
Fast may mean you achieve a lot more >
and it may mean you get burnt out quicker too. And have resentment.
I like fast answers and fast resolutions.
But sometimes the deep down truth and clarity comes slowly.
The #slow movement continues to grow, albeit slowly. There's slow food, slow fashion, and maybe increasingly slow living. Would it help you to slow down?
Let me know!
