Weekly Inspiration 5

Last week my quote was

Slow down, you move to fast. You’ve got to make the moment last. ~Paul Simon

After a very busy weekend away, those were the words that kept playing over and over in my head. I needed to Slow Down. But things were moving so fast I didn’t even get a chance to post my journal page with those words.

By the end of the week things had slowed down and a sense of rhythm had returned. Ahhhh.

Finally slowing down a bit allowed me to really read and feel very deeply the power in the quote on my calendar for this month. It only took me till the 4th week of the month to really read it. Maybe I need to hang up the Slow Down page as a daily reminder.

I share with you today this profound quote

Sunflowers

At the beginning joy is just a feeling that our own situation is workable. We stop looking for a more suitable place to be. This doesn’t mean that there are suddenly flowers growing where before there were only rocks. It means we have confidence that something will grow here. ~ Pema Chodron

There is so much wisdom in these words. I know I will be coming back to them again and again.
