slow soulful sunday

Its time for me to slow down.

It’s been a super busy summer, and now the change of seasons brings us time to reflect, to take stock, and to nurture ourselves.

I am spending today wearing my cozy jumper, listening to the rain on the roof, writing, sipping hot tea, listening to music, wearing my big wool socks and curling up with my book.

It’s a day of feeding my soul.

The only thing on my to-do list? A full body massage.

Wonderful.

How are you spending your day?

Ask yourself – Do you need to be energised, or maybe, it’s time to wind down and relax?

Slow down, happiness is trying to catch you.

If you’ve been rushing through life lately, here’s a beautiful little reminder to slow down . . .

SLOW DANCE ~ David L. Weatherford

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?

Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down. Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short. The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day on the fly?

When you ask: How are you? Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed

With the next hundred chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down. Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short. The music won’t last.

Ever told your child, we’ll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste, not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die

Cause you never had time to call and say, ‘Hi’?

You’d better slow down. Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short. The music won’t last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere

You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,

It is like an unopened gift thrown away.

Life is not a race. Do take it slower.

Hear the music

Before the song is over.
