Do you ever wish you could slow things down, but despite your best efforts, can’t ever seem to make it happen?
When it comes to slowing down, it’s not that we don’t know how to do it. If anything, we know way too much.
We know very well how to draw a bubble bath, how to make a fragrant cup of tea, how to sit outside in the sunshine.
Slowing down is not the problem.
The problem is that when we do it, we have to face the whiplash that comes from going 80 mph to going 10 mph, and all the things that come up as a result. For example:
- Sitting in the bathtub for half an hour may sound relaxing, but it also means having to listen to your racing thoughts. Alongside that comes acknowledging that as hard as you try, you just can’t seem to quiet your mind and seem to slow them down. And that frustrates you.
- Sitting outside in the sunshine sounds good, but it would mean pressing pause on your kids, your parents, your spouse and/or your work. Not only would those things crumble without your care, secretly, you would crumble if for one second you thought they didn’t need you to survive. Catering to their every need makes you feel powerful. Depleted, burnt out and resentful, yes. But powerful.
- Making a cup tea sounds nice, but it means that you would probably have to pay attention to that nagging feeling in your gut telling you that something doesn’t feel quite right in your relationship, or your job, or some other aspect of your life, and since you don’t know how to fix it, you just don’t want to face it.
So we stay busy, we keep working, we keep serving; all the time wondering when we are going to finally be able to relax, savor, and enjoy life. But as you can see.
To slow down in life, it’s not more TIME we need, it’s more COURAGE.
Courage to listen to what the racing thoughts, feeling in your gut, and the need to people please are really trying to say.
It’s listening to and acting upon those messages that truly cuts your energy and your power loose. (The bubble baths are really just the icing on the cake.)
