Slow Down...Walk, Don’t Run
Is it just me or have you ever have noticed that you can be with someone, (I call it sharing air space) yet not truly connecting? We can always go back to lessons from kindergarten and apply them at any point. Most of us, if we attended a traditional school, were taught to walk, not run, in the hallways. And I distinctly remember being taught how to handle scissors, point facing down and no running allowed. So now go back to the thought of being ‘with’ someone yet not connecting. Could it be that we simply need to slow down? That we’re ‘running’ through our together time? Think about all the things we’re trying to cram in to that given amount of time which truly can’t hold it all.
Whether its an over-packed action list or over-run emotions, sometimes the best thing we can do is slow down. Even if it’s only a few tiny minutes, make the most of them by being fully present. Maybe we only get two things done or talked through or celebrated out of our list of 10. That’s okay. Those two things will make us stronger. Allow us to really listen. Breathe. Let’s try to practice this with all of our loves. May we appreciate the journey. You’re doing great! Stay the course! Much love to you, Amanda
