A quote that changed my life: “how you do something is how you do everything.”
First, I noticed how I would walk as fast as possible everywhere I went no matter the situation or who I was with.
Then, I noticed I would rush through work tasks as quickly as possible.
I would eat meals as quickly as possible.
Smoked and drank as fast as possible.
The” little things” I did were all rushed.
I looked at how I handled the big stuff...
I rushed through sexual encounters. Friendships. Self care.
I thought of that quote more.
I would catch myself walking quickly down a street and ask myself “why? Why I am going this fast?”
I slowed down the pace.
I extended that question, that awareness into everything.
I realized just how much I was barreling through my life.
Asked myself why, told myself to CHILL.
How you do something is how you do everything.
I want to do everything mindfully
