Slowing Down: An Integral Part of Embracing

This morning while getting ready for the day I had a moment of panic. I realized that it was Friday, and I asked myself, “Where did the week go?” The thought was still with me when I was thinking about what to write today. It is impossible to embrace anyone or anything unless we slow down.


As I mentioned in my previous posts this year, embracing can be either physical or conceptual. We can embrace those around us. We can also embrace an idea or insight, especially as it relates to ourselves. Neither can happen when we are going too fast.


As the new year continues to ramp up and our calendars continue to fill up, let’s make the time to slow down, so we can enjoy those around us and the serendipities of our journey together.


Grace and peace,
