Going slow

I saw this quote on another blog...

Loving yourself has a lot to do with slowing down…
Rather than adding one thing more every day, why not try adding one thing less?
…Try editing your days; craft them to sing concisely like memorable lines of poetry.
…Rushing is anxiety in motion.
Mike Mason, Practicing the Presence of People

How true the words least in my own life.  "Rushing is anxiety in motion".  I've never thought about it like that, but it makes sense.  And rushing creates more anxiety in my own life as well.  
This is a lot of what I was getting at in this post.  Things that require me to slow down, be present, and remind me of the simple beauties of each day.
