What slow living really is about + how it can help you find meaning and purpose
It's been about a year since I discovered the slow living movement. And practicing gratitude has been a part of my life since a few years before that.
I've been thinking a lot about these two concepts lately: what they stand for, how they're very much intertwined + what living slowly and gratefully really is about and what it means to me.
Here’s what I've come up with so far (mind you, this is very much a work-in-progress!):
It’s realizing that the stuff we do when we aren’t *doing* is the stuff that really matters
It's appreciating that the smallest of moments mean everything and nothing at the same time.
It’s being present in the smallest of moments, the mundane things you usually take for granted
It’s accepting that life is short + our moments are speedily ticking by
It’s accepting the daily hardships of life and, at the same time, keeping an eye out for that silver lining
It’s finding what you were meant to learn from the mess + use it to help you reach the other side and be a better person
It's taking every single thing that happens to you + knowing that you can either benefit, grow or learn from it
