“I love to live in the fast lane and I don’t like slowing down!”
Does this sound like you? Are you burning the candle at both ends?
That was certainly me. Because with my vacation rental property, my ongoing coaching studies and my actual coaching, I had little time for myself. I would discuss meditation and journaling with my clients, all the while having at the back of my mind that I was not doing much of that myself.
It came to a crunch point. In a coaching session where I was receiving coaching, I found myself saying, “It’s all about slowing down.”
So the obvious question was “How are you going to ensure that you slow down?” It was time for me to schedule a daily appointment for meditation and journaling in my Google Calendar!
I made the statement that my ultimate message to the world is to let people know that they are loved by God. If I never speak or write again, this is all that I want to have said. The coach asked me how I would give myself that message. So I edited my appointment to say “Meditating/Journaling on God’s love for me.”
How did my Slowing Down Go?
Yesterday was my first day back in Meditation and Journaling. I thought about how we can feel God’s love for us. The thought came to me that God’s love shows up for us in other people’s love for us. Not the way they fail to love us! But the glimpses we get of how they actually LOVE us.
Human love is imperfect and incomplete. But when a family member cooks a meal for us that is love. If a friend gives us a hug, or a random stranger is kind to us, it’s love. These are just a few examples. We are surrounded by love all the time. We just need to be aware of it.
It turned out that my meditation and journaling session yesterday was one of the most powerful experiences of my life! I found myself writing about the deepest pain at the core of my being and I turned it around into something beautiful. There is no turning back. I am changed forever!

So I invite you to take some time out to slow down. Even if it is just to go into nature for a few minutes and feel the stillness.
