Slow Down

October 15, 2015


I saw a sign in a Doctor’s office once that had a profound effect on how I view life, and how I approach it in most cases.  The sign said, and I quote, “Don’t take life too seriously, because you’ll never get out of it alive!”  Deep?  Profound?  Have you stopped and smelled the roses today?  Have you slowed down a little bit from the rush to just enjoy life?  Too busy?  Too much to do?  You’d better do your best to enjoy life ‘cause you aren’t going to get out of it alive.
“You don’t understand how busy I am, Denn!”  No, I probably don’t but I do know that we often allow the urgent to take precedence over the important. 

There are some things that are universally important, or at least should be, and so we need to ask, “Are you spending enough time with your family?  With your God?  With yourself?”  and for that last one, I don’t mean working, I mean enjoying your own company, reflecting on who you are and how you can be better as a person

Why not take a little time today and find a rose to smell, a sunset to watch or a pond to dip your feet in!  Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
