Her mantra is quick, quick, quick.
She's moving fast forward towards everything.
She eats the meal fast.
She drinks the coffee fast.
She does the works extremely fast.
Married fast, and divorce fast.
And at the end of the day, will she die early?
What if slow living otherwise?
The world is evolving at the speed of light. We survive in this world that is too loud, too bright, too fast, and too cruel to bear the fear of missing out. Very often, the pursuit of speed become the mantra to live our time. We are busy and prioritized our time to tackle the urgency for meeting the deadlines set by someone else. Pressure comes from all sides of deadlines such as you have a bus to catch, an interview to attend, a movie to catch, or an assignment to hand in. We are so much hard wired fearing to the painful feeling of missing out. In fact, a deadline is not equated to exit. Missing out the deadline will not cause the death. When we concentrate on speed, the process along the way is becoming murky. We would miss out the clarity of the important things matter most to us. Conversely, slow living is the lazy way to drive you faster when you can see clearly:
Who are the ones need you most?
What kind of person do you want to be?
What is the difference you seek to make?
Slow living is a strategy to live a happy life.
Eat to Live
Health issues during women reproductive years are intrigued with the physical and emotional commitments in the family. We are what we eat. Sit down and take time for the meal. Mindful eating instead of going for the first food we see out of convenience and desperation. Eat slowly and chew the food slowly, it is not a race after all. Our body is not a machine. The components are expensive. If the component gets deteriorated, money can't buy a new one.
Live to Love
House is not a home. We are women good at turning the house into a home. I couldn't agree more that the home is a creative space to make a statement of individuality for full expression of who you are. Spend the time on creating the supportive home environment welcoming to family and friends. Home is where the kids learn how to love and care. Wisdom begins at home, isn't it?
Love to Growth
Take the time to spend the enjoyable moments with our children. The child-parent interaction has the critical impact on the child development and shaping his/her personality and worldview. Parenting journey is always rough around the edges. There is no ideal key or right answer that can unlock the future. When I was a child, my mom tried to do everything right to path the way for making my life happy. She was not so much successful, indeed. When the conventional wisdom is shaping our worldview, the opposite side can help us to learn more. Unconventionality isn’t a goal in itself, but it means looking at the world through an inquisitive lens as we did when we were a child. It takes time and a lot of effort.
Slow down a while to adjust the focus seeking the life you want to live.
