September 1, 2007 – September 4, 2007 "We live in a river of change and a river of change lives within us. Every day we are given a choice. We can relax and float in the direction that the waters flow or we can swim hard against it. If we go with the river the energy of a thousand mountain streams will be with us filling our hearts with courage and enthusiasm. If we resist the river we will be rankled and tired as we tread water stuck in the same place." Elizabeth Lesser from Broken Open
decided to attempt to mirror the pace of a box turtle. (did you know a box turtle may live to be 100?) A slow steady pace where I pay attention and listen to the world that surrounds me. I have been trying all summer not to overreact when life seems or feels unbalanced. To let go when I realize I am starting to overreact or lose my perspective.
If I need to nap or simple to lay down I will with no feelings of guilt that I am being lazy. When did I decide that being lazy was not allowed? One definition I found on line S: (adj) lazy (moving slowly and gently) "up a lazy river"; "lazy white clouds"; "at a lazy pace".
