Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

When you’re moving too fast
slow down
When you think you’re a genie in a bottle
Give yourself a rub

Chances are your on over kill
rushing around
so just chill

When you find yourself spinning like a top
and you’re ready to flop
Remember…. life’s just a game
Hit em with your best shot

The ferris wheel of life never stops
unless you decide otherwise
so do yourself a favor
don’t make us bust your chops❣️

Remember the song
Slow down you move too fast,
Gotta make the morning last?
I think I got it wrong

When you’re too young to remember the song, tune in
When you’re too old to remember
Think again…. and just ask YouTube
It’s called Feeling Groovy.


And if you’re anything like me just scratch your head and say
None of us are too young
or too old to play
Here we go spinning again❣️

Hi Y’all~

We’re all in this together. We all have a story, a tune in our head, we remember and then forget. We over work or go to the dogs, wondering when we can work again, start again or when our luck with turn. When this happens to you and it will at some point or another, we need to slow down, breath and be mindful and remember that we are only human. When we are flying so high, we never think we will hit the bottom….. We will even when we think we have life figured out. And then we need to get back to the basics. It’s truly as easy as that. I’m taking a page out of my own book.

The Steps you Ask?

Breath

Slow Down ( counting to 10 like we told our kids, really is a good idea)

Stay Mindful

Be Grateful for Everything❣️. ( Yes, that means what you have and don’t have 💖)

Stay Mindful: Be a silent observer of your life WITHOUT judgement!

Say Thank you …… the 2 most important words in the world❣️

Remember what you put out comes back to you 100 % so NEVER EVER GIVE UP❣️

If you think you’re beat you are ….sooo be nice to you. Nobody else will be unless you are too.

💖

You gotta love Simon and Garfunkel……. Oldies but Goodies …. Their harmony is incredible❣️

Happy Wednesday❣️

WE NEED EACH OTHER, TRUST ME AND IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME…. WELL…..

WE DO❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️

SEE YOU ON FUN FRI-YAY❣️

Thanks always for blessing me with your presence, your insight and your great writing, poetry and photography and comments which light up my day.

I am grateful truly……Thank You so much.

💖

Cindy

Groovy poem and a really far out idea. I always like that song. However, while I often feel groovy, especially playing with the cats, I’ve never paid much attention to slowing down. I like to go fast.

Wow, Cindy! No only do I know and love Simon and Garfunkel; I’ve also been on the ferris wheel in your featured image, which is in Tibidabo, Barcelona. I was frightened out of my wits, but guess what? I survived! That’s the exact same situation I face now trying to get my book published 😅🙏❤️ 💪

Thanks for posting this! Slowing down is great advice for when the world seems to fly past us in a crazy whirlwind. I’ve been feeling a little stressed and overwhelmed lately so I followed your tips and did some deep breathing, counted to ten, then named five things that I was grateful for ❤🌷❤

Cindy, nicely done. I love that you added the song I was humming as I read. One more add to your words, most mistakes are made when folks are rushed, tired or both. Patience is not only a virtue, it can save your hind end (and make you feel groovy). Keith

That’s a great poem and priceless advice Cindy. We need to slow down and relish things more often. And the steps you prescribed are just great, I had nearly forgotten how good a deep breath feels, till I inducted some hardwork recently. Thank you for sharing 🙂
