I may choose to ignore anonymous comments. I consider this type of anonymity dishonest. Also, I don't post regularly. I post when I have something worth writing and something worth reading. I explain all this in: Don't Let Telling Tales Trip Up Your Truthfulness.

The Pace of Life

Dieter F. Uchtdorf's November 2010 General Conference Address Saturday morning had an unusual amount of wisdom. I'm picking one item a day and posting some reflective comments on his quotes.
When stress levels rise, when distress appears, when tragedy strikes, too often we attempt to keep up the same frantic pace or even accelerate, thinking somehow that the more rushed our pace, the better off we will be.
I so often hear the rationale, "When things slow down we can do [insert activity, event here]. But things don't slow down. This is life. We either have to slow our pace or eliminate some of the things we are dealing with.

Because of chronic illness I have been forced to simplify my life. I think I am experiencing old age early. I'm dealing with many of the limitations that eventually force people to slow down, whether they truly want to or not.

I'm trying to slow down. And, I'm trying to want to as well.

(I am moving and will not have access to media for about one week. My postings will be added automatically on a set schedule. However, I will not be able to moderate any comments until I am back online. I'm sorry for the delay. I appreciate your patience.)
