Learning to Slow Down

Well, it is quite cold here on the east coast. In some respects, I have to say that that is a bit of a comfort to me. All the warm weather has left me a bit disoriented and troubled, questioning what exactly is going on with the planet at this point in time.

I am still in the process of knitting my fair isle cowl. It is a stop and start process. Since sitting still and knitting seems like such a luxury for my over active mind, it often gets set aside while I think about cleaning my apartment, looking for ways to increase my income, and sewing buttons on coats and sweaters.

My goal for this week is to slow down. I always seem to be thinking that I should be further ahead, more successful, and getting more done, but when I get so hung up on these things, then nothing gets done. Or as Jean Valjean said in the musical version of Les Miserables, "Another day, another destiny."


  1. How is your week coming along with trying to slow things down? It's not an easy task. I know from experience. My DH is HORRIBLE at relaxing. His mind is constantly running at 100mph and he always feels like he has to be doing something. I've learned over the years (the last ten) to make time to relax. In the beginning I actually made it a task and over time I have learned to really appreciate the recharge it gives me.

    1. It's harder than I thought. I realize that I have too many eggs in too many different baskets and simplifying it is going to take a little more planning and time than I first expected.
