Slow down, there is no need to rush.
You are safe to breathe deep, to take your time, and to find your footing. There is no sense of urgency here, there is only this present moment. It is okay to stop the clock, to come home to yourself and to take time to reconnect to your heart. You are worthy of a love filled, slow life where peace is the priority and you can take your time to just be. Life is not a race. You are not behind.
Pause. Breathe. Rest.
You are right where you are meant to be.
Our society encourages us to always go faster, to do more, to give even when we are empty. This is not a sustainable lifestyle. Rather, this way of life is draining and damaging to our mental health. When we live like this, we begin to only associate our worth with how productive we are- therefore continuing this cycle of being overworked and in a constant stage of urgency.
What if I told you that this sense of urgency was altogether false? Would you feel relieved or scared?
The truth is, that this urgency is false, and it is something that is pushed onto us by a capitalist society that only sees our worth as related to our productivity. In reality, we are special, powerful, magical humans- and we have so much more to offer. There is more to life than this constant race to find “success.”
In our world today, taking time to pause, rest, and reflect has become something that is almost shameful. We question why we feel the need to slow down and care for ourselves, thinking that by doing so- we are taking away from the greater good, and therefore leading us to feel guilty for our desire to live slower, more peaceful lives.
It is up to us to courageously reclaim this, and to welcome in the healing power of slowing down, and simply taking a pause. Life is meant to be lived, not worked through; and you are worthy of slowing down enough to truly enjoy who you are and where you are right now. You will never get this moment back, so stop and actually smell the roses. Feel the breeze on your face. Recognize the love and joy that already surrounds you. See that joy is found in the present moment, not something that is waiting for us at the end of the road.
Pause. See the beauty that fills your life. Know that you are innately worthy, and this is something that can never be taken from you.
