We all live life at the speed of our choosing, although many of us are not aware that we have a choice in the matter. I figured this out at young age once I realized that I could pack three times the amount of things in a day and subsequently, according to my young math skills, squeeze out more life from my days. And while I am still an advocate of engaging in life with as much energy as I can muster up, I have since learned the need for balance and the power of slow. Since my preference is to super multi-task (brush my teeth while reading while stretching), I must choose every day to practice something slow, because while I do want to squeeze as much out of life that I can, I don’t want to be so preoccupied that I miss out of life itself.
We need to fire up our internal engines and live with intention. The amount we learn in life is directly correlated to the way in which we live. Live (and I mean both emotionally and physically here) in such a way that you are proactively engaging in life, yet living slow enough to hear and react to the lessons that envelop your experience.
Live with intention and be open every day to new growth.
