Learning to Slow Down in Life

More Like undertime (1)

I use to think that the closer we get to our thirties, the more “serious” we should start acting and viewing our lives. It’s also been a period in life that I’ve generally been afraid of reaching, out of fear of not being where I should be or not having achieved certain milestones — at least based on what society and others tell you, that is.

We’ve often been taught that letting go of control goes directly against our modernized, industrialized way of living — after all, we always strive to remain the architects of our destiny. That’s what I learned growing up from teachers, magazines, songs, movies and so on, at least. My DNA simply did not allow things to merely happen on their own, and I had never been one to sit back and passively let go of control in the first place. That free-spirited, carefree attitude never played a role when it came to control for me. Over the years, however, my perspective has significantly shifted (for the better).
