Living in Fast Motion

I’ve been in fast motion my entire life. I wanted everything to happen now and not a second later.

If it happened fast, it was certain. Then I could relax and feel good. (Or so I thought).

I avoided the present moment of uncertainty because it seemed scary. The not knowing created lots of anxiety. So if I could just make it happen I could be in the future where I deemed everything to be okay.

Sounds stressful? Well it was.

Pushing forward in fast motion is never comfortable. And it doesn’t get you the change you really want.

The real kind of soul shaking, life-altering change happens over a period time. It’s made up of lots of small steps along the way. It’s filled with long pauses and lots of patience.

Your purpose often happens in a whisper and if you’re too busy trying really hard to change your life and escape your “miserable job”, you might not hear it.

It’s a culmination of your experience, desires, and dreams.

It’s who you’ve always been, but are still discovering.

It’s you at your core.

So slow down, just listen, you might be surprised at what you find.

Need to know how to get started?

Here are 5 simple ways to start slowing down:

1. Don’t check your e-mail immediately upon waking up.
2. Go to bed 30 minutes before sleeping without technology or TV
3. Eat your lunch slowly and actually enjoy it
4. Do something each day to meet your goal but don’t expect to do everything in a day
5. Find one thing about you to love each day

Slowing down is a process, I’d love to hear about yours!
