Slow Down And Enjoy The Ride

“Sometimes if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slowly slipping away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.” ~ Winnie The Pooh

Do you feel the need, the need for speed? Take a few minutes and watch this revolutionary little video put out by the Australian government. It reminds a little bit of a pharmaceutical commercial except they aren’t selling you anything other than some perspective.  It’s a human cautionary tale and safety video all in one.

This is the sort of shift in society we need right here in the US at the highest levels. Leadership by example. This is the kind of preventative medicine that could actually make a difference. It all starts with you and me.

If we stop treating life like a race, everyone wins. Enjoy the ride.

~~~ Daily Gratitude ~~~

I am grateful for the lessons I have learned the hard way.

I am grateful for the kindness of strangers.

I am grateful for hard and soft tacos. We shouldn’t have to make that choice. So good.

I am grateful for songs that remind me where I came from.

I am grateful for my sense of humor. Laughter helps me breathe.
