ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FRIDAY, JUNE 19TH, 2015
2 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER
Sunrise: 5:56 am
Sunset: 9:06 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Sauntering Day. Take it easy; relax, go for a stroll and enjoy some valuable ‘me time’ on Sauntering Day, a day which encourages you to slow down and enjoy the world around you.
You can spend your life walking through life, jogging through life, or being dragged through life. But, life is far more enjoyable, if you saunter through it.
Sauntering is not a walk, jog, trot, or run. Sauntering is a form of strolling. Sauntering is a very casual, yet stylish, form of movement from point A to Point B. The dictionary defines sauntering as walking along slowly, happily and aimlessly.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it
I’ve never been a jogger but I definitely am a saunterer. I do move slowly, somedays are slower than others. I’ll be the first to tell you that I work a little and rest a lot. I don’t do anything at high speed. I do live life in the slow lane.
When you live life in the slow lane, you notice things that you never took the time to see before. I’ve found that life doesn’t have to be so crazy. The craziness ends when people embrace the alternative which is slowing down.
I used to fear that something bad would happen if things didn't get done. It doesn’t. The work waits for me nicely. I’ve chosen to do the things I love, and drop the rest. Life is too short and at my age, I realize it more and more.
When we rush into something, we run the risk of messing up big time. Take it slow and we get the chance to experiment with small mistakes, helping us to grow so we can hopefully avoid bigger mistakes in the future. We don’t learn until we allow things to sink in.
The benefits of slowing down have snuck up on me in their own sweet time and I am most grateful. Slow isn’t dull and boring, but contemplative and considered.
Let’s face it, who wants to miss out on the beauty that is life.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday !

Stop beating yourself up. You are a work in progress; which means you get there a little at a time, not all at once.
