Have you noticed that everyone is in a hurry these days? Parents are in a hurry to send kids to school, the teacher are in a hurry to make the children understand all that they need to learn. Children are in a hurry to grow up. Young people are in a hurry to achieve greatness and acquire money. Have we , in our hurry to get from one place to the other, stopped enjoying the journey?
Can we take our life in a leisurely manner? Can the journey of life be entertaining and relaxing?
Why does it has to be caught in a frenzy of events, one colliding with the other. Overtaking each other at times and falling out of synch at others! Like the atoms in an object are constantly at motion, we are too.
If we look back to a time when our grandparents lived , we see a life of slow orderly pace. People had work. They had plenty of time for entertainment and hobbies. All the life was a well conducted symphony. In harmony and slow-paced.
So what has changed? Is this new, the norm and things will progress from here to new heights to hyperactivity? Can we slow down the pace and relish each and every moment as it passes or is the celebration of life, this fast and full speed ahead journey?
I have asked a lot of questions but I don’t have the answers. Do you? Can we take a moment to stop and smell the flowers? Enjoy the leisure of doing nothing, sitting and dreaming on the park bench watching the grass grow! All clichéd phrases but valid questions.
I am writing to express my opinion, share my experiences and to maybe provide some insight. My blog is addressing women at 50 ( but men are welcome to read my posts) ,their issues and the questions that come up at this stage in life. I don’t aim to teach, but to learn together.
