how fast the year can pass us by without once stopping to let us
embrace the full splendor of its immaculate beauty.
Maybe that is for us to take into our own hands....
If the year will not slow down for us, then we might need to slow down for it.
Two moving objects, traveling at relatively the same speed, have difficulty seeing one another as they pass by.
One must slow down to see the other. For example: while driving it is almost impossible to see a single blade of grass, lest you were to stop, get out, and examine the ground.
Those who choose to live life in the slow lane (whether in life or in the car) tend to see things that those who speed do not--life.
Because the we-the car-are going at such a fast speed, it is difficult for us to focus on one thing outside of our little fast-paced world.
The speed blurs out vision. It makes it hard for us to see the splendor that life has to offer.
We're missing so much by not taking the time to just enjoy living.
Slow down. Enjoy life. Live it to the fullest. Don't merely just exist.
Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR! Good-bye 2011; you've been both a struggle and a blessing.
