SLOW DOWN

SLOW DOWN

SLOW DOWN.

DON'T MOVE TOO FAST.

IF YOU KEEP YOUR PACE SLOW,

YOUR CHILDHOOD MEMORIES WILL LAST AND LAST.

THEN, YOU WILL LOOK BACK AT A BEAUTIFUL PAST,

THAT BRINGS YOU JOY AND HAPPINESS.

PACING YOURSELF AND SAVORING YOUR CHILDHOOD

WILL LEAD YOU TO A FUTURE FILLED WITH MUCH GOOD.

TRINA N. THOMAS-EADDY

As usual, E, you express profound truths from a unique perspective. I've only recently discovered what an effective weapon patience is. I don't mean the kind where you just stand there and wait for a bag of money to fall at your feet, but the kind where you pursue your purpose with appreciation and respect for each step in the porocess. It's a powerful feeling. As to childhood, it presents a problem, because children are impulsive and impatient by nature. But if there was a way to get this point across to the next generation, it would change the world overnight.

So true. Thank you for reading and commenting............E

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
