Everyone can have abundance

“Everything changed the day she found out there was exactly enough time for the important things in her life.”
The New Haven Register wrote a lovely column about The Power of Slow today, ending with the quote above from an unnamed source. The writer points to our need for gratitude. I believe it is the founding principle of slow to realize you are abundant with all that you truly need.
We chase rabbits down foxholes, looking for the Holy Grail when, quite frankly, everything we already have is everything we’re looking for. As human beings, we have an enormous capacity to achieve great things, yet we often think what we need lies outside of ourselves.
Sometimes the biggest achievement is recognizing our limits, taking it down a notch and enjoying life at a saner, slower and more sustainable pace.
