The Gift of Slowing Down

The Gift of Slowing Down is an original, trademarked digital art piece and writing by authors Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff. http://QueenofYourOwnLife.com

Sometimes, to get it all done, she felt like she was moving faster than the speed of light. She decided to take some time during the day just for herself. The gift of a few moments stop and think about how much she had accomplished rather than punish herself for how much was left to do. ~ Queenisms™

We tend to think of sitting quietly as selfish. After all we should be doing something, right? But the gift of a few moments, quietly enjoyed, daydreaming or just letting ourselves breathe deeply, is not selfish. It’s self sustaining. We say this often but if the well is depleted, no one gets any water. Do you allow yourself the gift of slowing down and taking a break? Let’s share some ideas and help one another to prepare for a season that speeds up if we’re not consciously scheduling time to relax.

The gift of a quiet moment is something we can’t ask Santa to deliver. We have to give it to ourselves.

    I love this message of slowing down, especially at this time of year. My gift to me is taking time to play my Ukulele and sing! It is so relaxing and it’s impossible to be stressed playing that happy little instrument!

  2. Terry says:

    You are so right! Reminding oneself to focus on the positive is so very import. Also, it can be challenging. “Why am I dealing with so many alligators, when the purpose was just to drain the swamp”.

    You made us chortle with that one Queen Terry! Alligators, it’s time to relocate. 🙂

    We’re beaming from ear to ear just thinking about the sound of a ukulele! You’re so right, Queen Heather. It’s impossible to be stressed while producing such a happy sound.
