GODDAMN

I'm doing it again. I start writing a post and get distracted by another idea and start writing a new post without ever completing either.

It's call a chao kuan. Nothing holds my attention long enough. But I honestly think that this problem is faced by many. We're living in a fastpaced world. I'll salute whoever can just sit still and do nothing.

We're constantly on the move, constantly updating ourselves, afraid of being left behind, of being immobile.

Take a deep breath, and chill the fuck down.

Have you ever watched kids
on a merry-go-round
Or listened to the rain
slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down
Don't dance so fast
Time is short
The music won't last

Do you run through each day on the fly
When you ask "How are you?" do you hear the reply?

When the day is done,
do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
running through your head?

You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast
Time is short
The music won't last

Ever told your child "We'll do it tomorrow",
And in your haste, not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
'Cause you never had time
to call and say "Hi"?

You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast
Time is short
The music won't last

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift thrown away...

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

- Slowdance by David L. Weatherford
