Several times a day over the last few weeks, I have unconsciously stopped what I was doing just to sit and think.
The fact is, I am inspired. I am also happy. The books that I am reading, the ideas that I am thinking, the dreams that I am dreaming, how I am spending my time, what I am choosing to go without, all of it reflects an optimism...a positivity that is new to me.
I am pleased with my progress, and I see the potential for further improvements without being in a rush to get there. I am taking things slower, not rushing through an enjoyable activity just to get to the next item on my to-do list. When I talk to someone in person or on the phone, I am present. I do not multi-task, splitting my attention between the conversation and the TV or computer or any other shiny distraction.
Every day, I am reminding myself to move slow and make sure that I enjoy the ride.
