“There is more to life than
increasing its speed.”
It seems we think faster is better for most everything. The other day I was putting a package of stuffed peppers in the microwave and I had to laugh at myself because I thought fifteen minutes was a long time to wait for it to be ready to eat. And let’s not forget how long we have to wait for a K-cup to brew for our morning coffee. Oh, and if we come to a traffic light and it changes to red and we have to stop for that minute to wait for it to turn green again is like forever! Maybe sleep is the exception to this silly need for speed. Although, we do usually want to fall asleep as quickly as possible.
I wonder what Gandhi would think of the pace of life today?

We live in a hurry-up world – unfortunately.
It is unfortunate and kinda sad. I am learning the joy of letting go of the feeling hurry-up. A blessing of retirement, I think.
I would never race John getting to sleep, because he would win every time. Maybe it would be best for me to enjoy the process of going to sleep instead of trying to rush it.
Letting yourself simply drift off to sleep is the best! Give it a try, morning will be so beautiful after sweet slumber.
I do drift to sleep, and you are right. It brings sweet slumber. Sweet dreams to you, Patricia.
