“Busy” isn’t an always achievement. You don’t always have to be multi-tasking. 400 tabs don’t have to be open in your mind. You don’t have to look like a smooth sailing duck above the water with feet flapping a million miles a minute underneath. Yikes- hopefully I am not just talking to myself here.
Sometimes slow is okay.
My word of the year this year is “savor.” And whether in enjoyable, difficult, discouraging, or amazing times- I’m trying to realize the need to slow down… and savor. Be present in the moment and take it all in. After the moment is gone, you can’t get it back. Even if it’s a yucky one, you can still savor it and pull something good from it. And if it’s one of those amazing moments, don’t waste time doing something else.
Slow it down.
