This week, I’ve decided to focus on taking it slow… I want to look at different aspects of living life in a more mindful way. This is related to Slow Motion Blowjob, of course, but it’s more than that. I spend a lot of my time looking at was that I can enjoy things more and be more present in my life. The idea of living slow is a central idea that I keep coming back to.
One thing that I look to when I think about the value and pleasure of slow living is an article from lifestyle blog Mark’s Daily Apple. It deals with all facets of slow living, and points out some very valid ways in which living life at a break-neck speed hinders us:
On a personal level, it can encompass all of the games we play with ourselves to stay above water like eating quick instead of nourishing food, neglecting fitness and play, using stimulants to get through another afternoon, giving up sleep, and multitasking our way through each day. In our attempts to meet the most immediate obligations, we miss filling our most essential needs.
I don’t want to live my life without really connecting to the meaningful people and things that make it worth living. I love food, I love good drink, I love music, I love the arts, I love leisure, I love sex, I love Mike, I love my close friends and family and I love all of you. I want to be able to give time to everything, even when modern thought dictates that I should be too busy with other things. So, I’ll be blogging this week about ways to slow down and enjoy things and themes around slow living that interest me.
I’d love to know… What do you think of the idea? And what do you do to slow down and appreciate things?
