My husband was reading a book (The 4-Hour Workweek, by, Timothy Ferriss) last night a came across this poem that was sent to the author. It really makes you think about what is important in life…

 

 

 

 

 

SLOW DANCE

Have you ever watched kids On a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight? Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down. Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short. The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day 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 running through you head?

You’d better slow down. Don’t dance so fast. Time is short. The music won’t last.

Ever told your child, we’ll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste, not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die. Cause you never had time to call and say, “Hi”?

You’d better slow down. Don’t dance so fast.

When you run so fast to get somewhere you miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day, it is like an unopened gift thrown away.

Life is not a race. Do take it slower.

Hear the music before the song is over.
