The Week 4 – Attitude

Slow Dance

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading light?
You better slow down.

Time is short
The music won’t last
Do you a run through each day on the fly?
When you ask, “How are you?”
Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,
With the next hundred chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast
Time is short
The music won’t last

Ever told your child,
We’ll do it tomorrow?
And in your hast,
Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say “Hi”

You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast
Time is short
The music won’t last

When you run so fast to get somewhere,
You miss half the fun of getting there
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift…
Thrown away.

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over….


I saw this three times in the last week read to me, printed on a wall and posted on a website and I thought to myself this must be shared!

I think this applies to all of us, in life we just rush all the time and the minute you slow down, start your mindfulness, breathe and go with the flow it makes you a better person.

I had to pat myself on the back this week. I had to perform a task this week that I performed exactly a year ago, same stressful task. Last year this time I was running around swearing and shouting. This year I stopped, breathed, got slightly annoyed but then thought to myself what is the point, and slowly but surely worked through it and got it done with a smile on my face and a dance in my step.

I just realised how my change in attitude changed the entire situation, it had all the same stressful aspects it had last year, the only thing that changed was my attitude to the situation and viola!! it all worked out, just like it did last year but with a happier me at the end.

So my lesson for this week is to slow down and take the right attitude into a situation and it will make it so much easier!

Lots of love
