beauty of snow

The snow forces just about everybody to slow down. We drive slower. We walk slower to avoid falling on the ice. We combine our errands into one trip so we’re not driving as much.

And the slower pace is refreshing.

What if you don’t get everything on your to-do list done today? Will the world end?


Life continues on. The more we realize life is not defined by our to-do list, the more we can live in the moment. The more we’re fully present. And that is the best gift we give the people we love.

This is one of the gifts my Tongan and Samoan friends are teaching me. They’re helping me realize my concept of time moves way too fast. Life is all about relationships.

What helps you slow down and enjoy the moment you’re in?
