Slow down and enjoy..

Slow down and enjoy

"Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience."

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Racing through life is very stressful. If we stay in high gear too long, we lose our ability to shift down. And when we're stressed, we can't access happiness, appreciation, fun, compassion, generosity, awareness of beauty and other wonderful qualities. High stress also triggers negative emotions like frustration, impatience, anger and fear.

Life has so much to offer if we will slow down and truly experience it. We must always remember that we are the ones in control of the accelerator. We CAN choose to brake.

"Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast -- you also miss the sense of where you are going and why."

-- Eddie Cantor


  1. What a beautiful reminder to slow down, take it all in and enjoy these glorious summer days. Thank you~ I needed to hear this today~

  2. I always tell others to pass me by, go ahead, rush yourselves silly.
    Life goes to fast to miss it, I am taking the slow lane.

  3. Isn't that the truth... We're all so good at rushing. Thanks for coming to visit.
