The Effects Of Stopping

The Effects Of Stopping

Effects of StoppingFor the most part I have been relishing in the slowness of our lives down here.  I’ve loved our days with no real agendas or time frames.  No appointments, meetings, social obligations, and to-do lists.  I’ve surprised myself by how easily I have been able to let go of my need to stay busy. The effects of stopping have been positive.

That said, it hasn’t all been easy.  The inner-naggings and voices that cause me stress can more easily be heard these days because my mind isn’t cluttered by endless distractions.  I am grateful for the opportunity to get to listen to these pieces that I have been pushing away for some time now.

    This is something that interests me, the mental processes of removing ourselves from convention.

    I recently have done a bit of reevaluating many aspects of “The way things are supposed to be” in my life and find it not only rather healthy, if not intense at times as I try to sort through many conflicting points of view, but in the end, extremely gratifying to find that the thing I have been taught, and even the way that most people think, are not necessarily the only or best way out there.

    ( Man I love a good run on sentence 😉

      I so value when people break out of the ‘mold’ and forge their own way. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
