Take someone who doesn’t keep score,
who’s not looking to be richer, or afraid of losing,
who has not the slightest interest even
in his own personality: he’s free-

Alongside all the noise in the social media world in regards to how we are wasting our daily lives away in front of a gadget of some sort or another – All of us seem to have a tighter daily schedule with all the training, club/social events, competitions And let us not forget about the “The weekend is here its time to race” mentality. Dinner has become a leftover lovers, microwave users dream! Stuffing our faces, racing to catch the 5pm pilates class at the gym, only to be stuck in traffic, feasting on leftover mandarin orange chicken from Trader Joe’s. Down time is the eight minutes we get to wait because the instructor is late from running her own little “turds” to soccer practice.

And here I am lamenting, writing yet another post about our hyper-media-constantly-on the run world we live in. Dear Reader –  Enough is Enough. All our efforts to keep “fit”, “active” and “involved”, are actually keeping us dazed, tired and confused (awesome movie title huh?!?).

Daily Meditation:

It’s time to slow down, time to pause, time to smell the lilac blooming, or better yet eating dinner at home – Just a thought

*Side Note*

There are a few times during the year that I like to share a link(s) to a worthy cause – Consider this one of those times. There’s no need to twist your arm or whatever, however, these kids are doing such amazing and inspiring work and having fun doing it! A classic win-win situation!

  1. We are all over booked. I no longer try to blog daily. If I get in three days, that is fine with me. I’ve also cut back on TV and newspapers. I listen to NPR in the car and watch some news while i’m getting ready in the morning.
    I didn’t run a single race in July and had to remind my self to just let it go.
    Once you get caught up in all of this stuff, it is difficult to un-wind from it all.
    Cheers – Andy

      And to think tomorrow is the first day of August … What you did my friend was not easy, not in the very least! And when you do get back to racing? You’ll know your heart is there a little bit more, your smile widens, so on and so forth. Take care and be well!

    Hit the nail on the head. Came home from swimming and have been on the ‘puter for 3 hours. Time better spent walking my Dulcinea, sitting in the backyard reading a good book, or pretty much anything else. Although, I did enjoy reviewing the race this past weekend and putting my thoughts down on virtual paper. I used to put it in my journal. That’ll be a loss to me some day, no doubt.

    Ah, but what if fast is happy? I remember someone talking about their racing days. I do hear you, but fast isn’t all bad either. Nice post brother.

    Finding the balance between connecting with others through blogging and stepping away to discover deeper truths is on the top of my list.

    Luckily, I don’t do that rush world – but I wonder why people do it. We can practice yoga at home, go walking, jogging whatever. I wonder if people like to complicate their lives!

      Fantastic points to consider, we truly are our own worst enemies at times … I hope you are enjoying a peaceful and relaxing weekend, take care. 🙂
