go slow and notice

boys fishing at sunrise on Playa de San Agustinillo

I searched this blog for ‘slow’ and the results came back with 10 posts, of which Slowing Down was the top of the list. A cancer diagnosis, an unexpected health crisis, the death of a loved one…those awaken a need to slow down. I remember, though, in my work in the corporate world that I was hungry for an intentionality, a consciousness, a being that was often challenging to find, given people running around on autopilot and an organizational emphasis on speed.

I picked the morning sunrise photo because starting the day with the sun rising invites a slowness, a stillness. When I remember that morning walk on playa de San Agustinillo, in my body I feel the sense of peace and possibility for the day.

More encouraging words about going slow are here:

rich lens of attention
blushed with beginning
befriending
sanctuary
the gift of now
What’s waiting
Stillness
Unfolding
