Worried and bothered about tomorrow?
Instead let’s learn how to regain the glow.
Through simple steps that I am about to show!
Let us learn to dwell in the now!
The slow…. now!
Don’t stop! Go!
But – go slow.
Become the tortoise and carry the inherent hare, in you, on your back.
Yes! When the going gets slow, you too should get to go, slow.
Time for us to unlearn the fast life paces. It’s time to relearn slowness.
Learn to change gears from the top ones, to the lower ones.
Smoothly, both as individuals and as families.
To go slow let us learn….
Learn to slow down our life-pace.
Learn to slow down our expenses.
Learn to slow down our plans.
Learn to slow down our thinking.
Learn to cope up with the strife, on the stride, with a smile on our faces.
Learn to live in/with less.
Learn to walk in the woods.
Learn to use the public transport once again.
Learn to cook and eat slow food.
Learn to not to frown and grumble.
Learn to earn less and live in less
As a God Bless.
What’s got to go, has got to go!
Let it go.
If need be, throw!
Without a wrinkle on the brow!
Don’t cling on to any thing that is not of any/much use.
Rework your clutter list, mercilessly.
From own thoughts, to other earthy belongings.
If it’s a credit card that is not being used, surrender it.
If it’s a car you are no longer using, sell it.
Not getting the right price ? Donate it.
Consider these current times to be as good as spring cleaning times.
Accordingly, offload as much as you can.
Do that and dip the hat.
Once done, pat the back.
As you cleaned the rack!
Share, care and dare.
Share whatever and as much as you can, with as many!
Open your heart.
Open your purse too.
Tithe as much as you can.
Don’t worry! Remember “The more you give the more you get.”
Give as you would, out of heartfelt care.
Yes – you need to dare.
Dare to care and share.
Share all that you can.
Dare to look at every difficulty as a challenge.
Look at it in the eye.
Affirm yourself and address it like so. “I am bigger than the problem, and I shall win over it”
Loom over it.
Loom to bloom once again, as you will for sure.
With a strong will and a slow pace.
With dignity and new found grace!
Lie low – spend slow.
Spend slow, both energies and money.
Lie low, like the Anaconda does. Once its tummy is full and dry season is looming over head.
With advancing drought it moves from water laden rivers, to shallow water puddles.
From drying shallow puddles, to the shady trees.
Stays there too, till it rains once again.
It knows it will.
And it does.
As, tough times do not last, but tough beings do!
It lives and survives to live again.
As it’s all about survival of the fittest.
In this the crazy “Economic Jungle”
We have created over these past 100 plus years!
When you go slow, you retain energies/savings for longer duration.
When you lie low, you retain energies/savings for longer duration.
When you do both, you retain/regain your natural glow!
So why not flow slow, with the slow flow, to glow!
As slow and steady wins the race.
