Are You Slowing Down or Crashing?

When life starts giving you warning signs, do you slow down? Or do you keep barreling ahead until you crash? Most people in the western world keep busy until they crash, not having heeded the calls to slow down. 


Yesterday I split wood for the very first time in my life! And I was incredibly surprised by the enormous gratification of the experience.

I was up at Justin’s family’s home for Easter brunch and his dad had a huge pile of wood in the yard. Justin asked if I wanted to try splitting wood. I felt a little squeamish. Not having ever held an axe, I was a bit embarrassed to be a novice wood splitter in front of his family… It was silly, I know; but the vulnerability kicked up my shyness.
