Dance slower

It seems my to-do list is always never ending. My head is constantly busy, I always do and think about more than 3 things at a time.  I NEVER slow down. Sorry to say, but i do rip myself apart for other people a lot!!  I need to stop that, I need to dance slower. After reading about the causes of Bells syndrome,it all came together, I am doing to much too often, I need to slow down, I need to stress less, No I am not the type of person, who go sits in a corner and get myself in stress ball, I tend to coop it up! And now it has hit the fan!!LOL!! This came at the right time and I want to share it with you:)


Have you ever watched kids
On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You'd better slow down.
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.
Do you run through each day
On the fly?
When you ask "How are you?"
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done
Do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?
You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.
Ever told your child,
We'll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say "Hi"?
You'd better slow down.
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.
When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift....
Thrown away.
Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!


  1. So start dancing slower my friend...
    I have started as I need to take care of myself as one else is going to...

  2. Very, very true...some people internalize their stress and then it pops up in all sorts of health problems...sometimes I wish I was made to LIVE OUT LOUD!

  3. So so true. I never sit still, rush around all day and then wonder why i cannot 'chill' and the end of the day.


  4. I agree, take time to stop and smell the roses! Life is a gift and we tend to take it for granted. Take care of yourself and get better!

  5. love these lyrics , Tania ! I can see them on a layout - some parts of them ! ;)

    I'll email you soon with the bakeless choc chip recipe ! do you have a waterless stainless steel cookware system by the way ?

  6. Such lovely sentiments & so true. We have to make it happen or life is just a crazy race. I am hoping that soon I will also be able to slow down. I have visitors for the whole of July - which should stress me out big time - but from then on I so hope that I will be able to take things slower too...
