Slowing Down

by: MaCherie Creations

For those of us who sometimes feel a bit overwhelmed by juggling all that we do, this video has a great message. It was recently posted by The Road Safety Council from Down Under. The focus is about road safety; however, there is a wonderful message that connects to how we live.

Just this morning I was adding more tasks to my todo list, feeling the familiar twinges of frenzy while figuring out how to get everything done. Then I received news from a dear family member who is undergoing another round of chemotherapy as surgery is not an option. And so I'm forcing myself to slow down so that I can focus on what truly matters: Life, loved ones, the promise of spring ...

Two new tasks have been added to the very top of my todo list: "slow down and breathe".

  1. Thanks for the reminder. : )

  2. Oh yes! If there is anything this past year has taught me it is to smell the roses now!! And try to do things you always wanted to try. Hug your loved ones. Enjoy your food. Get rid of the guilt and try to let go of your baggage. Slow down, enjoy, breathe... Lovely post! xo

  3. Great reminder, but it seems to me that spring, in all its beauty, just seems to speed things up... :)
    I will take time to smell the flowers (lilacs, right now) though. Thanx for sharing!

  4. yes, a slower pace....always a good thing.

  5. AWESOME!!! Must figure out how to get that link and send it out to all my fast paced, stressed out friends, and myself, as a reminder!! Thank YOU so so much for posting that and the amazing message to just.....be......

  6. ps.....and I am sending out big positive energy to you and your family at this difficult time. Much peace, strength and hope to all....

  7. Thank you for the reminder. Blessings to you and your family ... and to everyone who is feeling rushed and pressured. Yes, smell the roses!

  8. Finding this was a little blessing today - life has been VERY hectic in my little corner of the sandbox, and this gentle reminder to slow it down a bit was most welcome. :-)
