What are you missing?

Living life unhurried is not easy.

A few months ago, I committed to spending three hours a week reading, reflecting and writing. It has already been a struggle, but so far I have been able to enjoy that time most weeks.

When I am trying to develop a new habit, it helps me if I remember WHY I am trying to make the change.

I discovered an excellent WHY video while I was researching content for the “31 Days of Unhurried Living”. I never tire of watching this video, and it continually motivates me to unhurry my life.

Kimi Werner is a champion freediver and spearfisher. She has learned an important lesson that is valuable for us also.

CLICK HERE to watch the video. If you are in a hurry 🙂 , just watch the first part (0:00-4:20). It really is worth your time. The video continues – and it is all good – so watch the full recording when you have time!

These are the questions that came to my mind after watching Kimi’s video. They help me to remember WHY I want to live unhurried. How would you answer them?

What do you miss when you speed up?

What might you experience if you were to slow down?

  1. Awesome, Blossom! Thanks for keeping me on the path of conscious unhurriedness! I don’t even think that’s a word, but you know what I mean. If I’m not thinking about it, I’m not doing it.

    • 🙂 Thanks, Dayle! I love that video too. Very sobering to consider what I miss when I hurry… and inspirational to consider what I might “see”, if I would only slow down. Let’s keep learning to slow down together!
