Slowing down is one of the most difficult things that I strive to do.
Whenever I go for a walk I want to run. I mean this literally. My legs are itching to go faster!
Today Noah and I took Bo for a walk. Noah was quite worn out because he had been on a busy morning with his grandparents first.
So rather than striding along having races as we often would we pottered along slowly taking and enjoying each others company and the sunshine. I totally LOVED it.
Rather than finishing feeling exhausted we both felt great and enjoyed the quality time we had spent together.
We got home and still had energy left for everything else that the day had in store. Perfect.
Sometimes slowing down a little means that overall you get more done.
A stitch in time and the hare and the tortoise are now ringing in my ears!
