Slow Down

“Don’t count the days, make the days count.”

Oftentimes, I find myself counting days.  Days until Thanksgiving break; days until Christmas; days until I see my friends for the first time in over 3 months.  Although its a good reminder that those events are coming up soon, it also means that I’m just living each day so I can get to the next one and be one day closer to the next event.  Also, I am often rushing throughout my day, walking quickly through the cold to get to the caf, walking quickly to class, even walking quickly to Mass on Sunday nights because to me I need to get to the next activity I am involved in so I don’t waste time.  I never take time to slow down and take a second to look around at God’s great creation.  However, every once in a while, when the sun sets, I’ll stop in my tracks because sunsets here on campus are the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.  But other than that, I am constantly on my toes rushing from one thing to the other.  Even though I will continue to count the days, I’m going to start taking my time walking to where I need to go.  Baby steps. Hopefully it will help remind me to slow down every day.  Take a break today and go for a walk and appreciate the world around you.

God Bless!
