Sometimes you think you don’t know.
You think you don’t know the best time, the right thing to do or whether to even do anything.
You think you don’t know if it’s going to work out, if it’s going to be ok.
You think you don’t know if that voice of anxiety whispering in your ear with ten or twenty or a hundred dangers and unwanted turns in the road ahead is a voice of fear or the voice of intuition.
But you always know if you slow down.
Just like you knew it was time to end that relationship.
Just like you knew it was time to move to another country.
Just like you knew it was time to ring the hospice.
Just like you knew this morning as your mind was trying to work out the optimum time to go to the supermarket to buy food – shall I go early, shall I go later – well it’ll be cooler earlier but what if they’re still doing work on the car park, that was chaos last time – what if they don’t have what I want – and what about that other shop I want to go to, it won’t be open – although I don’t really need to go to that shop today – maybe I should just wait and go tomorrow………..
And then you slowed down, you slowed right down and you felt yourself reach out for the car keys.
You always know.
Slow down to the speed of Life.
