900 Posts to Slow
Today represents my 900th blog post.
The number surprised me. Back in 2008 when I started this blog, I wondered whether there was really enough to say about Slow at all.
Yes, there is.
Slow is a lifestyle choice. The great thing about it is it gets expressed differently for each person. One person’s Fast is another person’s Slow.
Slow is really about mindful living. It is about thinking before we speak, act or do anything. Its power lies in the decisions we make every day.
When I embarked on the Slow journey, I had no idea I would end up where I am today. It is a path that requires authenticity, honesty and sometimes really hard choices. It makes us look at ourselves in ways we may not want to. But when we do, the true value of the exercise comes forth and we are set free.
A liberated life is definitely one worth living.
Imagine your life, free of the restrictions that you once placed on yourself, thinking you had to be one way when you really were another. Envision a world in which you get to be who you are, going at your custom pace and doing what you love.
The Slow Promise reflects:
- Your ability to evolve
- Your power to affect the world
- The energy that grows from your centered being
- Your truest purpose on this planet
- Your magnificence
900 posts later and I’m still in love with Slow. We have miles to go before we sleep, my friends.
Won’t you join me?
