What’s worth slamming on the breaks for in your life?
This morning I went for a run and I decided to SLAM ON THE BRAKES!
I must have looked quite a sight as I stopped abruptly, stretched up on my tippy toes and inhaled deeply. You see, I’d been about to run past a few of my favorite flowers – Angel’s Trumpet – a whole small tree bursting with these beautiful, scented blossoms. I just had to stop and take a long, deep breath. Forget my mile time, forget my schedule. That one deep, heady breath with stay with me for days…
I keep hearing the same feeling from clients, colleagues and friends – its’ hard to believe Fall is here and October is upon us! What happened to this year?!
Does your pace have you feeling constantly on the run?
As we transition seasons and yes, enter into the holidays, shortly, this is a perfect time to reflect on our pace. Are we living an urgent, frantic (in my case, urban) pace? Or are we mindfully creating a graceful pace for our loves?
After my run I slowed down, literally, sat on a bench and meditated. This practice helps me to shift gears and transition into my day. Here’s a glimpse of my view from today’s meditation spot.
