Slow Down

"Often the best moments of our lives arise within the pauses between our endless hurrying. Slow down. Enjoy your coffee for-here. Eat sitting down. Don't text and walk or drive. Just text fully. Communicate fully. Eat fully. Be fully. Do fully. Live fully. Love fully. Feel fully. It's all just one pause away. Multitasking takes us away from the magic of this moment. Breathe. Cry. Smile. Connect. It's not too late to fall in love with your life."
~ Waylon Lewis

We all know that life is busy, we can all agree with that. What we need to do is slow down or pause life. I have been practicing this for a couple of weeks now and have begun noticing more people and life around me. I've watched a beautiful woman literally stop a conversation and walk, just to smell flowers and gaze at their beauty. The above quote, I don't know if any words are truer than this. Please, I encourage myself and hope to inspire you to live your life fully. Communicate, especially make sure it is done fully, things are always left assumed and unsaid that create horrible mishaps later. Eat, be, do, and LOVE fully "It's not too late to fall in love with your life," you just have to start.
