In Search of Unhurried Living

465e0c04434ee9f0fe6f21d01fde706e slow downI could easily describe myself as a recovering “hurry-aholic”.

I have a model Type A personality and a very full life that could give me plenty of excuses for living at a consistently frenetic pace.

Over the years, however, I have been learning to s…l…o…w… d…o…w…n.

It hasn’t been easy, and I still struggle at times, but all-in-all I am generally much more relaxed and at peace with my life and others. (Maybe one of the reasons you haven’t heard from me here in a long while.)

I have found that many others – maybe you? – also struggle with “hurry sickness”. So I thought I might revive my writing and share some of the things I have learned to counter our hurried life.

Some of what I plan to share comes from a “31 Days of Unhurried Living” campaign I directed last Spring. I will also add in new thoughts and content from books I will be reading. In the next few months, I am going to take three hours each Monday morning to read –  my new personal application of Unhurried Living.

So… if hurry has ever been an issue for you, or if your outer life is slow, but you would like to unhurry your heart and soul, please join with me! It could make a difference.

  1. You’re back!!! YAY!! And….in typical Terry fashion, you are tackling a great topic. I just sent a text to the family sharing how thankful I am that GOD, in all HIS omnipotence, chose to bless us with rest – not just sleep – but the kind of rest that renews us. I need the rest, and I have a feeling what you’ll be writing about will give me some new tools, much needed, to find some rest time. Looking forward to it!!

  2. I ALWAYS HURRY! I don’t know if it’s me driving or the expectations of others. At this point, it’s a thing. And if this thing has you writing again–it’s a good thing! I’m looking forward to this–unhurried life, here I come. But not too quickly.

    • Hahaha! You make me laugh, friend! Hurry is a “thing” for many of us! I am hoping that by writing about it, I can help myself and others. Thanks for your constant encouragement! XXOOXXOO
