Slow Down, Observe, & Enjoy

Some things are moving so fast around you that you can miss out if you aren’t paying attention.

I love going on walks with our dog Olive. It’s a time to slow down, observe what’s going on around me and just enjoy life.

Yet even when I’m trying to slow down — life can keep racing on by.Slow Down, Observe, & Enjoy |

That’s what I love about this video. Olive reminds me that even as I slow down life is racing forward.

This forces me to be okay with not going as fast as everyone else. I have to accept the reality that I cannot sustain a fast pace. I need to slow down – observe – and just enjoy.

How about you? How do you take time to slow down each day?

When’s the last time you took a walk, or a nap, or just spent alone time with God?

When will you do it again?

Slow down long enough to feel that life is racing by. Thank God for the opportunity to take a break. Then do your part to obey what He’s telling you to do!
