Sometimes you just have to slow down and work at half-speed … even though it’s only Tuesday …
I will sit here with my bottomless coffee cup and a decent view of suburban America, and work at my own speed today, while I watch the rest of the world rush by. I will not worry about deadlines or things I need to accomplish or complete. I will do some things that matter mostly or only to me.
I will take time to go through files and delete things no longer of value …because we all need to clean up and clean out every now and then.
I will pause to consider how things are going and make sure that the direction holds enough value to justify the energy being exerted … because energy should be worthy of aspiration.
I will catch up with people who I want and need in my life … because these connections are important.
I will engage in the things I really just like to do, like writing and creating webpages … because they make me happy.
I will let go of the larger concerns that hang like thunderclouds over my life … because they are not going away anyway.
Remembering that, if you just let go every now and then, life can be good in the Heartland ….
