Going piano.

I was rushing all my life.
But now the pain in my joints is forcing me to slow down.
And I like it.
Not a pain but slowing down. πŸ™‚

Going slow I’m avoiding tripping, falling down and breaking my old aching bones.
And I have time to think where I’m going, why I’m going there and what I will do when I get there. πŸ™‚

Sure, I can hurry up if there is emergency.
Than I will forget the pain and I will do whatever have to be done under the circumstances.

This old Italian Proverb explains why going slow is better:

Chi va piano
Va sano
Va lontano

Means: He who go slowly
Goes healthy
And goes far

So slow down if you want to go sano and go lontano. πŸ™‚

And someone Anonymous said:
Slow down happiness is trying to catch you.

Thank you for visiting.
God Bless you all.
Pray for Peace

  1. Thank you for liking my latest blog. It means a lot to me. πŸ™‚ I enjoyed reading this one!! πŸ’

  2. ha.. i thought you were going to say you’d taken up piano lessons!!!!

    ginger, papaya, pineapple and curcurmin are great for relieving the pain… i make a big pot using the fresh ginger/curcurmin and then blend with papaya and pineapple.. dodging plants in the nightshade also helps… potatoes are a big pain trigger for me…

  3. The piano, Oneanna, is a secret unto the soul only, exclusively and ultimately. Trust that your ears are not your knees! Our spirit strives, even on the whisper of our every wish…

  4. Thank your for posting Anna. I will always remember that “he who go slowly, goes healthy and goes far.” I hope you are doing well. All the best, I keep you in my prayers.

  5. Yes, pain is a good Teacher.
    We are slowing down or still staying in rush,trying to forget about our body.
    Always, whatever, our new inner Teacher is showing to us, WHO we really are.
    I think all who survived cancer found themselves in time when invisible killer was living in them.

  6. Happiness opens me every morning and closes me every night I’m alive, and slowly we arrive in our new body to give it a chance to catch up with our minds and souls. Thank you for posting this insight. Sending virtual happiness to you for a weekend of life and love.

  7. Hello!
    Thanks for liking my post.
    I, too, have been forced to slow down due to health problems and I, also, have known the oh, so, worn out and drained feeling from living with chronic pain. But, you are one of the first people, besides my daughter, who has ever shared the positive advantage of slowing down. I adore the concept of happiness now being able to catch up with me! I do believe that is the best inspiration and affirmation I have had, lately.
    Thanks, again, and stay blessed.

    I love this saying its short and sweet and is true a lot of us go so fast that we miss the little things in life. So lets go slow and enjoy everything we can πŸ™‚

  10. Ah, that is very beautiful. I love the idea that happiness is trying to catch up with us. This makes me think of how important it is to try and live in the present moment and not be in such a hurry to get to the next thing. After all, life is the thing that is happening whilst we are busy making plans πŸ™‚

  11. I can so relate! Since diagnosed with severe arthritis at a relatively “young” age, going slow is my norm! And like you have said… It isn’t all bad! Not nearly as eloquent as your quote, “Stop and smell the roses” is my new mantra! Thanks for reminding all of this life lesson!

  12. All the best Anna. Will always think of you and will remember you. I wish I had known you in real life. But I have come to know you here. Keep strong, great is the most high. hugs and kisses from me. Juli

  13. So true and I love the Italian quote! Thanks for sharing. I have a poetry blog here on WordPress and today’s post is about slowing down in case you have time to look? Have a good day, Sam πŸ™‚
