Park Your Mind

“Slow down and everything you are chasing will come around and catch you.” ― John De Paola

As I pondered what to do more of or do less of during Lent, the answer suddenly revealed itself loud and clear – SLOW DOWN. So often, I rush through, multi-task, check off lists, faster, bouncing, quantity over quality. And I know I’m not alone. This is the way of the world. And it’s hollow.

We need to park our mind each day to be present, to listen, to stop the fleeting thoughts that keep us off balance. Pull over and put it in park. Take time to gaze, graze, watch the clouds float by, to breathe in the beauty and fragrance of a single flower.
