There is more to life than increasing its speed.

Mohandas K. Gandhi

Sometimes life gets so busy that we forget to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life. Life doesn’t have to be so crazy. All it takes is slowing down.  By slowing down,  you will be healthier but also happier in the long run.  

You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.

Walter Hagen

It’s life in the slow lane for me.  It seems the hurrier I go the behinder I get.  When I try to go too fast, I make mistakes that actually make me use more time that I should.  By taking time to do things, I’ll get them done faster than when I hurry.

For fast acting relief try slowing down.

Lily Tomlin

  Slowing down means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything.  

Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going to fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.

Eddie Cantor

Great post! I agree with you... I wish I liked winter, however. This long season would be more enjoyable if I liked it even just a little bit.LOL

I have also learned the hurrier I go the more mistakes I make, and I cannot afford too many of them.
YES I too prefer the slow lane, you get to see more of life, that is for sure.

If I had my druthers, I'd avoid interstates the rest of my natural life!
... and that goes for other parts of my life, as well. Simple pleasures, best sipped slowly.


i agree we should all slow down. "It seems the hurrier I go the behinder I get."
