Weekend Wisdom: Don’t give your all. Same some for you.
It’s time to slow down again.
We need to keep reminding each other to slow down and enjoy our lives. Because we forget. Things like busyness, urgency, little kids, illness, grief, stress and overwhelm swoop in and whisper in our ears … you are falling behind, you need to catch up, you are lazy, no pain, no gain, you don’t deserve joy. And we respond by running in circles, feeling more stressed by comparing who we are to who we think we are supposed to be. The not so great news is that all of the things that are out of control will continue to whisper. The good news is we can change our response. Instead of responding with panic, we can notice the whispers and then choose to answer differently. We can undo our todos, slow down, be in awe of something, enjoy a simple pleasure and do what ever it takes to come back to our hearts.
