We are back!! Monique (the french lady) joined Kirsten in this oh so good episode talking about the concept of slowing down. What does it mean to "Live Slowly?"
In todays world we are always told to want more, do more, be more, have more....and only then will we be happy. How can we take simple steps to slow down whatever phase of life we are in?
Monique talks about her health diagnosis that forced her to make changes in her life. She shares with us her inspiration for her instagram account called Motustardus- which means slow in Latin. She says, "Life brought me exactly what I needed".
Kirsten shares about a book she read recently that talks about this concept called 'Chasing Slow'. In it the auther says," Many of us have come to a point in life where we feel weary. We have burdened ourselves with possessions, packed social calendars, busy work schedules- loads that are far too heavy to carry-yet we grip them with clenched hands."
Maybe we need to stop trying to paddle fast enough to outswim our sadness.
