Earlier this week, Simple Mom posed this question: Are you living slowly? Unfortunately, my answer to her question is a resounding NO!
On my way back from the gym yesterday, I heard an old hip hop song. I LOVE old school hip hop! This new stuff is horrible, but I digress.
In the song, the rapper said “it’s 1990″. As I rapped and drove, it suddenly hit me that 1990 was TWENTY-TWO years ago. Where has the time gone?
I don’t know about y’all but time seems to move at the speed of lightening! Is living slowly even possible in 2012?
We have all heard the term “living life in the fast lane” and associated it with wild parties and throwing caution to the wind.
However, several online dictionaries have defined life in the fast lane as: a hectic and pressured lifestyle often characterized by recklessness or dissipation. Hectic and pressured sounds really familiar, I don’t even have time for a “wild party”!
We all know that if you drive too fast, it can lead to what appears to be reckless driving and perhaps loss of control of the car. I found it really interesting that dissipation can be defined as mental distraction or diversion.
With so many balls in the air, I find it hard not get distracted. With more and more places to be and more and more things to do, getting over in the fast lane seems like the only option.
Proverbs 21:5 Careful planning puts you ahead in the long run; hurry and scurry puts you further behind.
So Divas, are YOU living slowly? If you are a ZEN Diva or are working on slowing down, please share your tips with me! I really need to slow down and at least NOTICE the roses!
