I’m really tired of going fast.
And pushing till my bones hurt.
We live in a culture that demands we go faster and faster. Click-bait, sound bites, competition to get more and more and more. Traffic. Appointments. Getting the kids from here to there and there.
Posting. Sharing. Narrating our lives on social media, even in the quiet moments. We don’t stop.
Faster and faster.
Until we break. Until we can’t do it anymore. Until our body shouts NO!
But what if there were another way? What if we practiced going slowly? On purpose.
So we can feel.
So we can hear.
So that all the noise and distraction can settle.
We slowly unwind the tightly coiled burdens.
In the slowness we can finally remember. Who we are. What we need.
There is clarity. And breath. And release.
There is peace.
There is truth. There is courage. There is power.
And so, this is how we practice. Slow. On purpose.
Michelle, can you relate? Does your life feel like it’s spinning out of control? Are you moving so fast you can hardly breathe?
Join me this Sunday to deepen into this conversation. I will be offering a free Sunday Service on “living slower,” and how, with the conscious choice to slow down, we can access and see who we truly are. We can heal the hurt and put back the broken pieces so we can meet this crazy moment in time. It’s at 9am PST in our private group. The Sunday Service is always recorded, so you can watch it on your own time too.
