I am so used to doing, rushing. The never ending list of to-do’s, deadlines. 32 weeks pregnant now my body is starting to let me know it is time to S-L-O-W.
I have, I do, struggle with this as I am so used to doing, completing, succeeding, proving worth through external measures. However, I also am understanding more and more that slowing down does not eliminate productivity. In fact, many times I have noticed that it actually enhances it.
When my mind starts to spin (as it has been the past few days) I start to lose energy and my productivity actually decreases as my focus blurs. It is at these times that I am recognising the need to stop. I need to receive the world in, through the senses. I need to notice the finer, exquisite details of life around me. The delicacies that may be missed in rush. It is in this place that I begin to feel more revived. I begin to see the world differently, with a sharper focus and clearer mind.
