Slow Down Your Life Now

The mark of a successful person is one that has spent an entire day on the bank of a river without feeling guilty about it.

I read this on the net and was so inspired. You would too after reading this;
This Poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York hospital.


Have you ever
watched kids

On a
merry-go-round ?

Or listened to
the rain

Slapping on
the ground?

Ever followed
a butterfly’s

Or gazed at
the sun into
the fading

You better
slow down.

Don’t dance so

Time is short.

The music
won’t last.
Do you run
through each

On the fly?

When you ask
How are you?

Do you hear
the reply?
When the day
is done   !

Do you lie in
your bed
With the next
hundred chores

through your

                                       You’d better
slow down  

Don’t dance so

Time is short.

The music
won’t last.
Ever told your

We’ll do it

And in your

Not see his

Ever lost

Let a good
friendship die

Cause you
never had time

To call and

                                       You’d better
slow down. 

Don’t dance so

Time is short.
The music
won’t last.

When you run
so fast to get

You miss half
the fun of
getting there.


When you worry
and hurry
through your


It is like an

Thrown away.

Life is not a

Do take it

Hear the music
Before the
song is over.

                                       You’d better
slow down. 

This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to live their life to the fullest, since she never will.

She’ll never make it to prom, graduate from high School, or get married and have a family of her own.     

Let us learn from her before it is too late -

Some Actions that we can Take

For the next 21 days Just Slow Down Each Activity for the Magic of Life to Unfold to the wonders unimagined.  Relax, take life on a slow cruise.

When you get up, just don’t just jump out of the bed.  Take time to appreciate all the Good things, and the nice People that you have been blessed with. Thank God for a great day and a great life. Thank God for being alive.

For the next 21 days brush slowly, bathe slowly, eat slowly, drive slowly. Do all actions like you see a movie in a Slow Motion.  Experience a whole new chemistry of your body, and the rhythm of life as it changes for your own Good.

Remember Speed Kills.

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
