Ever need a reminder to slow down? By slowing down I don’t mean ridding yourself of all your responsibilities or choosing to not do what has to be done, but I mean just slowing down in thought, taking things one day at a time, one step at a time, and one moment at a time? I know I get so wrapped up in what’s going to happen 3 days from now that I sorta forget what’s going on today. I always have my list of what needs to get done before the day is over, but I’m always thinking about what else needs to get done over the next few days. Or around 6pm shoving/adding 7 more things to my list. Planning is good. Don’t get me wrong. But I think this tendency distracts me. I tend to get thinking about everything else that the my thoughts are all about what is left to be done and what all is going to happen, rather than focusing on what is to be done now or is happening now. My mind races at 78890393837363 miles/minute sometime. I need that reminder to slow down, to make sure I’m taking the time to appreciate the little things, stay in touch with friends and family, and–most importantly–spend time with God. Too Being tooooooooo busy is distracting.
So, I tend to look out my window and try to notice something that I haven’t noticed before and let that be my reminder to slow down and appreciate life for what it is right now.
