Slow down and enjoy

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

Thank you for the reminder!  Especially this week, I know how important balance is.  Yet, sometimes we are on high gear to much.

Have a great week!

It is so easy for that balance to start tipping in the direction of stress and the rush, isn't it Brian?

Stop and smell the roses isn't a pupular old saying for no reason!! 

I have to remind myself more often than I should that life is short, and we only have TODAY!! It is a great reminder that each of those days should be lived to the fullest. 

Great thread  - I needed the reminder!!
