I don’t know about you but I’m a deep thinker. My mind is always off on some adventure, down a rabbit hole, twisting and turning and coming up with new ideas and new ways to look at old situations. I like to explore things, different possibilities, different ideas, play and turn things upside down and back to front in my imagination and my understanding. You know like a child.
Lately my friends and I have been deeply exploring the idea of slowing down. Not being so goal orientated. Allowing things to grow organically, take their natural evolution. We are taught to push, reach for our goals with such force and velocity that if we are not doing this we feel we have failed. Yet slowing down and relaxing into things, using our feelings to guide us into the next step, with this space miracles start to occur. You can listen to your soul, your inner being, that part of you that knows deeply what is best for you and let it lead you to deeper, more fulfilling places.
And it was one of those conversations that sparked my imagination the other day whilst sitting with a friend having dinner. We were talking about the age old subject of relationships, oh yes that old chestnut!! Both single we were discussing the possible highs and lows of dating. As we talked it struck me that we are so conditioned to find the perfect partner we usually forget to have FUN. We have forgotten how to laugh and play and to slow down and enjoy the moment.
It can be a scary thing to do, to slow down because it takes trust and courage, you don’t see the end picture but you also don’t become so fixated on it either. So instead of looking for the end goal, the big prize that always seemed out of reach, I have started to follow what I like to think of as the breadcrumbs of life. Follow the path that life gives us and enjoy that journey. Sometimes you may come across a huge juicy baguette, laden with all your favourite foods and with this you may want to stay a while and savour the experience. Sometimes you may come across something that is old and stale and doesn’t serve you. Sometimes you may come across something that looks delicious and everything you have ever wanted but leaves you with an upset stomach and a bad taste in your mouth.
But all these experiences are important, you would not want to miss any of them, you would not want to skip any of these breadcrumbs because ultimately they lead you on the journey called life. And here is the beauty of it, each of those breadcrumbs expands your being. They expand your knowledge. They give you more and more experiences to file away and call upon when you need to. Your life is richer because of them. You need to know what you don’t like in order to truly know what you do like, to truly appreciate the beauty of an amazing experience when it comes.
So I urge you to slow down, savour the moments, let the breadcrumbs lead you, let them take you down an un-trodden road, let them take you into the forest of adventure. For it is here that the true beauty of life resides. We shouldn’t be in such a rush to get to the end of the road, what is there for us anyway? Follow the breadcrumbs my friends and enjoy each and every morsel.
