Rushing Rushing Rushing.....

It's LATE and I'm still on the go!
Had been chatting with a few friends online for hours.
I can't seem to be able to stop tonight.
I had a great time at work with my workmates having giggles here and there.

My mum hurt her back last Wednesday. She couldn't move. I was worried to death!
Took her to the doctor and spent time with her for the past few days.
This slowing down process was really benefical for me - even a blessing!
In our world we hurry all the time don't we?

Often we have so much to do and not enough time to do it.
The results are our goals, and we seldom take time to enjoy the process.
Makes me wonder how much we miss everyday.
Perhaps we should slow down and enjoy the journey rather than just heading to the destination.

What do you reckon?

Hope your mom gets better.....

I'm a slow middle-distance runner?
(21:18 in last 5k...getting older)

I also use pasta&potatoes as fuel.

They seem to rush my kareoke's by a beat or two (who knows?). BYE !!!

Most of us don't slow down until we're forced to by circumstances beyond our control.

When we slow down we are brought face to face with things we try to avoid in our busyness.

Slowing down and silence is seen as the enemy by many. I'm learning it's worth the culture shock. But when you're on go slow and the rest of the world is on hyperspeed it can be hard to really connect with others.

Hey Jeff, my mum is better now thanks. It's good to know that you're not rushing your life hehe. It's tough having to do that I reckon.

I agree that slowing down and silence is worth the culture shock Kel. I am learning to intentionally slow down and take a relaxed attitude, as the life of strain is difficult.
