The need to slow down

The words of the master were sign #3;

Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Seriously, in last 4-5 days I’ve seen nothing but signs that say – slow down. First it was the International Institute of Not Doing Much and then Good magazine has an whole issue towards slowing down. So I did what any self-respecting person who thinks that the random appearance of three similar ideas/objects will bring meaning to life and slowed down. Here is what I’ve done so far.

1) I’ve stepped back. I’ve tried to observe what is going on around me. How are things moving around me? What am I moving around? So far, what I’ve noticed is things are not really that complex. If you just notice, most solutions and ideas are right in front of you. You just might need a different perspective. Going a tad slower allows for the possibility of multiple perspectives.

2) Enjoy more by doing less. 2K10 friendship day was great. Simple. Awesome. Noticed many small things. Felt weird and sorry and sad for Tyson

3) Turned the corner. Broke a promise never to blog too personal. Can’t win them all.

And in turn slow fashion…that’s about all I have to say about that for now. Though, has given me time to have a few good thinks.

A person should not believe in an “-ism,” he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, “I don’t believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.”
