Do you feel the need to escape your frantic pace?
What would it be like for you to slow down and savor your own life?
2019 has offered me some significant opportunities to learn to slow down starting with an accident early in the year where I had no choice but to sit still for a couple of months. Fortunately I'm recovering well and have learned a valuable way to live life. It's really not a marathon race, it's savored from a much slower pace!
Now we have some major issues with our home to deal with so I've decided to set aside the Playshops until a later time, likely in the Fall. Am looking forward to relaunching them then.
Going slower on my journey has helped me get in touch with what really matters. Relationships-not things. Am so grateful for my husband, Jim, and many dear friends who were there for me earlier this year when I needed extra help! Self-care has also taken on a whole new meaning. It's now a moment-to-moment process for me. Often it's just remembering to take a deep breath, along with a break, every hour. My belief is if we as a society prioritized taking breaks (from daily or even hourly breaks to our vacations), we'd be more refreshed, healthier, and a lot more productive!
Getting more rest also inspired me to pursue a dream to learn about Storytelling. In March/April I took my first Storytelling class and we had a showcase recently where we shared our scenes to an audience of 50! My scenes were entitled, "Dysfunction Junction in Belle Chasse, Louisiana.Come Meet My Parents." We all rocked the house with our performances and made a powerful impact with our audience.
If slowing down could benefit you, be sure to read a poem from my blog below entitled, "The Answer to Life is in Slowing Down" and check out my recent blog article below on how to reconnect with your playful self. Now that's how to relish life!
Wishing you excellent health and plenty of time to enjoy living!
Blessings, Peace, and Joy,
