Slow down you move too fast, you got to make the moments last

Blogging can be difficult especially if you judge your blog by visits in a day.  I am thrilled when I get a lot of visits in one day and disappointed when the visits are in the single digit.

I have done some very interesting blogs,  and they are in my archives, month by month but I guess blogging like the movies, it’s all about the latest releases.  

It leads though into something I spoke about this week when I did  a speech at Toastmasters.

Practicing Acceptance.  Acceptance is something I believe everyone needs to practice, for themselves and for others. If we are always competing, then most of the time we are going to disappointed and unhappy. Most of the time we are going to be down on ourselves.  Instead by practicing acceptance starting with ourselves, then we are released to enjoy the moment, instead of feeling dissatisfied, we can value the moment, the day and ourselves.

Would you be happier if you practiced acceptance? How would it change you?

  1. Yes! I think I am actually pretty accepting … except when it comes to accepting giving myself time to slow down. I need to do this more.

      thank you for the comment. I think most people are too critical of themselves, but you push yourself and it sounds like you do it even when you want to sashay instead of dash. When I used to run there were some days I just did not want to get out of bed but knew part of me did want to go running. What I would do was I would let myself run ten minutes before I decided whether I was going to have an easy day and walk home. Invariably those days i did my full run, but part of me felt good that I could cut myself slack if I wanted to. I enjoyed those running days, rain or shine, day or dark, and I suppose I accepted that somedays higher bed gravity meant I needed to use jedi mind tricks to get vertical.
