Slow down…

Whenever you are driving, do you think you can see the scenery clearly?

Whenever you are running, do you think you can see the scenery in details?

Whenever you are walking  and you keep thinking, do you think you can notice the scenery in details?

Whenever you are keep walking and keep talking, do you think you can notice the scenery around you?

You can’t discover the beauty surrounding you, if you are not slow down, be mindfulness and be at now.

Slow down your pace, you’ll discover the beauty of life!

Happiness is like a fountain of joy and smiles, let’s discover our inner treasure instead of keep pursuit of worldly wealth and  fame!

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis
on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without
rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment.
Only this moment is life.

By Thich Nhat Hanh

There is no way for you to discover plant on plant if you are in hurry!

There is no way for you to discover plant on plant if you are in hurry!

Can you see the little butterfly if you keep talking?

Do you see Little Grasshopper? Slow down, you can discover the beauty of life!

  1. Reblogged this on Be Well And Happy and commented:
    I really liked this post – Thanks Lijiun! We absolutely have to make a conscious effort to slow down….. everyone is moving at a bonkers speed

  2. Beautiful! And so true, people always tell me that when I eat, I disconnect completely, and eat too slowly. Well, I wouldn’t want to eat any other way, how would I enjoy my food? And that’s so true for life in general as well.. Loved reading your post 🙂

  3. Omg I love it! This is the motto I live by and base my photography off of as well! I appreciate this!

  4. After awhile of being sight-impaired I began to stop trying to look at things I couldn’t see. When I got my sight back, I had gotten so used to not paying attention to anything that I missed a lot of important things (that can be bad when driving a car, lol!). I’ve had to make an extra effort since then to really try and get back into the habit of paying close attention to the details around me. What a whole world of things we miss if we don’t!

  5. True story and I think it happens to all of us. Question is how do you stop and slow down at first when you feel like your mind is rallying and you’re not living at present?

    • Sis, Pls focus on your breath in and breath out, gradually your mind will calm down. Take a try! May you be well and happy! Cheers!

  6. Yes! Observe, enjoy and nourish the spirit, but do not let the joy robbers get in your path. Observe and go aound them. Just maybe they will feel the Love as you wisp by.
