Take It Slow!

We are almost always in a rush to get somewhere.  Hurry to the next thing.  Get to the next place.  Do it quickly because I have a “to-do list” a mile long.

But today is my day off.  So I slept in a little later than normal.  All the way to 7:15 am.  Mostly I slept in a little because of my workout last night.  I spent some time with the kids before they headed off to school.  And when they were off to school, the house was empty and quiet.  A great time to simply take it slow and enjoy the beautiful morning.

When my wife returned from taking the kids to school, we decided to go on a run together.  I absolutely love the freedom to go on a quick run with my wife.  We don’t get to do that together very often, but it’s so much fun when we can.  I guess there’s something special about having a hobby you can share with your favorite person on the planet.

The scenery was beautiful; my wife being the #1 source of scenery attraction for me.  I’ll just leave that thought there.  =)  The sun was bright.  The temperature was perfect for a run.

It was simply a fantastic morning!  I took it slow and I liked it that way.

I do still have things to accomplish today, but what a great start to the day.

So I want to encourage you to take it slow.  Find time today to slow down.  Evaluate life a bit.  Enjoy those closest to you.  Take time to enjoy the weather and sunshine.  Don’t just rush through it and take it for granted.

Get out there and slow down!
