This wall hanging is a reminder for me to Slow down and enjoy my time.
Snail and turtle are the animals I saw in this wood. It was starting from these two animals that I worked, one knot after another, reflecting on the ability to slow down.
Learn to slow down: this is what you need to do to take care of yourself.
When you feel that you need to dedicate yourself you often feel the lack of time. Time is the most precious resource you have, but you are not always able to manage it in the best way.
However, lack of time is also one of the most used excuses for not getting involved and not taking care of yourself. It takes courage to put yourself first, I’m perfectly aware of that, but if you don’t do it, no one can do it for you.
If you feel that you have too many things to do, too many commitments and you can’t stop right now, you have to know that sometimes you just need to slow down.
Slow down means learning to manage your time and enjoy it, finding some space for your being to emerge.
Slow down means taking a breath between one task and another and becoming more aware of the choices you make.
If you feel that being productive is very important for your life please remember that productivity to be efficient also needs “time to be”. When you realize that being time is just as important as doing time or even more, you’ll probably feel the sensation of efficiency and tranquillity. You are efficient and at the same time you have time for yourself. It looks like a miracle!
When you slow down, you balance your energy and realign yourself with the universe, and it is in this moment that miracles happen.
P.S.: Slow down can also means knotting !
