📅 Thought for today:
‘Slow down and everything you are chasing will come around and catch you.’
— John de Paola

These words ring in my ears, “slow down”.
When I was training as a therapist, they were the words of my tutor, Gill.
“Slow down”, she would say, “take your time, let things emerge”.
And then, later, the words of my supervisor tutor, Joan, “Slow down, slow your client down, don’t rush with them.”
It has been a good weekend for slowing down and being present.
Just noticing things as they happen.
I set out this weekend to NOT have a to-do list.
I had a vague sense of some things that needed to be done, and some of them were indeed completed.
However much of the pleasure of this four-day weekend has been in just letting things happen.
By the way Stephen Ward, I finished your book, it was one of the eight I have been reading this weekend, it’s taken me a while!
