slow living

THAT !  – lifts the mood** & put all things together…

My personal secret:  ‘be with others generous and self-sufficient in dealing with expectations’

All i know about slow down did i learn by traveling in the carribean area, cause Islands always have been encapsulated by the rest of civilization.  

As we know these days ‘good Life’ doesn’t mean quantity – but do and own the ‘right things’. Belongings can stress a lot, trust me – I checked this out.

I admit, there are life stages sometimes it’s more difficult, in case you have a family and the children are still small. But even here one can ‘create’ oases.
If you manage to appreciate exactly what you have, then you are already on a good path.
Also, doing only one thing with muse – instead of multitasking – satisfies much more.

& the nature you us how**

Try to remember a sunset walk or the air in a forest after a rainy day, here you can pretty good refuel your tank.

So just go out,  into nature and think about what you really want about now. … and make plans right away, how you will realize these. Don’t wait too much!

It’s for sure, deep inside we all have wishes, still not filled.
…seems we want ride the rainbow

Daily work occupied the most hours of our days.
Consequently we should own less things, to need less to work.

To achieve this we have to change some habits, you can also say, we need  some ‘nudge’. 

More or less softly, i reduced my stuff.

 Since then i feel a lot better – i am on my way to a bohemian soul. 

Good luck then

  1. In such a demanding world, especially with kids, it’s really challenging to live slowly. Even so, I think it’s really important to set apart some time in a day to “slow living”, if we ever want to continue living as a human than a machine. This post is a great reminder to me. Thanks!

  2. This post is so beautifully written, thank you. Being chronically ill, I do live a slower life but I agree with finding joy in less. The less we own the less we have to worry about, leading to a calmer existence.

  4. It really is true that we don’t own things, things own us. You learn that quickly when camping off a motorcycle. Great post, amiga.

  5. Great reminder. Im a very hasty person. Always want to do things fast, maximise my resources spent (money, time etc). Occasionally, i do “force” myself to go on a weekend getaway from the city. In the middle of the jungle without reception. Just me, a book, and some close friends.

  6. The photograph calls out slow down, appreciate the view, the best things in life are not bought with financial deals, they are bought through time spent with people and lifting each other up. Thanks for the post.

  7. Yes! I agree. I feel so much more free when I own less. The things I own become more meaningful and I take better care of them. Having less possessions surprisingly frees up a lot of mind space; creating more peace and calmness.

  8. Thank you for visiting my blog recently. I wonder sometimes why the world is in such a hurry. I watch cars zipping in and out of traffic to get ahead only to pull up to them at the next stoplight. People should really follow the old saying – stop and smell the roses – because soon enough you will be the fertilizer for them. Keep up the good work on your blog, poetry is becoming a lost art!

  10. In this fast moving world, person with multi tasking abilities are acknowledged more at work. But in life , its ruining the moment to live on. We need to slow down and enjoy each moment with our family , friends and our surroundings.
