Pause again…

October 9, 2016

I’ve been busy, new job, new routines, new life! Hence the lack of recent wittering on this blog.

But ‘tis Sunday night, the kids (and wife) are watching ‘Strictly’… and so here goes…

I recently had a chance to drive a car where it constantly reminded you of your real-time fuel economy. I discovered that I am all too often burning fuel when a slight gear change will see me travelling the same distance but burning less energy. Just a slight gear change required.

The key thing is I often need to be reminded of this. Perhaps it’s often worth recognising that a slight gear change might be worthwhile in life. Either; stepping up to the plate, changing up, and grasping the bullish nettle by the horns, or more often than not, taking time out, more haste less speed, slowly slowly catchy monkey – or perhaps the monkey’s not needed, just let the monkey be.   

I also have been reading (thanks Brian) about how our energy hungry ego is easily enchanted by life’s trinkets. Our ego comforts us with life’s mediocrity and escapism. Our ego can pollute our dreams and visions and can numb or even smother our soul. It can do all this while feeding on our energies and our valuable instincts such as; love, joy, sharing, gratitude, creativity and wonder.

Without waffling more, here’s to the occasional gear change!

If you’re going through a chilly headwind and it seems you’re going one pace forward and two back, change gear and breathe. Pause, breathe through your nose… relax, you can smile… feel alive and step forward, one pace at a time…

If you have decisions to make, change gear and recognise that “you can get it, if you really want” (to quote Jimmy Cliff).  Pause, breathe through your nose…relax, you can smile… feel alive and step forward, one pace at a time…

I know I’ve shared it before but it works for me…
