One of the dogs I'm housesitting has this wonderful enthusiasm. It's infectious. When she's let out of her crate in the morning, she can't control her excitement. As soon as I let him outside, she starts bounding around, jumping up and down like, "Ohmigod! Ohmigod! It's a new day! Do you see? Look at this! New sky! New sun! New dew! Ohmigod, ohmigod! Can you believe it!"
I wouldn't mind starting every day like that.
Wow, this is a great talk on how life is TOO fast, and how to slow down, how to live our lives instead of hurrying through our lives. I like his talk, LOL, but it cracks me up that he talks so quickly about slowing down. :-)
One of my New Year's goals was to do one thing at a time. I'm not doing so great on that front. For example, right now I am listening to music, listening to this video, writing this blog, and writing my WIP.
I think I need to get in touch with my "inner tortoise," too.
How do you slow down? Do you slow down? How do you focus? I have such trouble focusing on one thing.
