Slowing Down

For as long as I remember, I've held a quick pace. Since a couple of years I realize that instead of making me "efficient" it prevents me from really living.
So I'm working on slowing down.  The best way to do that is to stop focusing on my mind, and turn my full attention to the body. When I sense the aliveness of my feet and legs, my torso and arms, my head and face just by itself a little smile appears... :-)
Then I'm fully present. And then I've slowed down enough to be here for what I am doing in this specific moment and who I am with right now.
When I slow down I live more fully, and I am there for all the little miracles of my world.
One of the miracles - a cup of hot chocolate on a cold day
