Slow Mom Movement
October 6, 2009
Kiwi magazine and I had a chat recently about living the slow life. Perhaps indicative of the topic, my phone didn’t work the day we were to have the phone interview so we had to reschedule for the following day. Embracing the slow, I realized there are many ways to connect with people. Luckily, my email was still working so the writer and I were able to remain in communication despite external circumstances.
The Slow movement is gaining a strong foothold in our society as people realize their current pace is not sustainable. At one point we all give out if we don’t rest and take time for self-care.
As the seasons change (for the Northern Hemisphere, things are turning colder), we need to be reminded to:
2) See the big picture.
3) Laugh. A lot!
4) Allow for tears and periods of mourning.
5) Accept ourselves for who we truly are.
Let us remember what is important. And what is not. It’s not winning the soccer game or getting a perfect score that matters. It is the process of becoming we must cherish most. Slow Moms unite!
