Discover Prompts: Slow


Slow and steady wins the race, like in the story about the tortoise and the hare. My take-away from that story was slow was also methodical, focused, complete. The hare’s fast was chaotic and disjointed.

Slow cooking vs fast food. Slow cooking tends to be a better quality of food while fast food is in the same category as junk food.

The song “Slow Hand” by the Pointer Sisters:

“I want a man with a slow hand
I want a lover with an easy touch
I want somebody who will spend some time
Not come and go in a heated rush”

Slow indicates a caring, loving lover while a sex partner with the attitude of “wham bam thank you mam” only cares with himself getting off, with their orgasm and then they are on their way.

Slowing down means taking the time to smell the roses, not just running over the tops of them, trampling them to the ground.

A slow day maybe considered slightly boring but at least it’s not full of drama and trauma.

  1. I have plenty of excitement and fun in my slow days. ❤ I value them too. Fast stuff tends to either leave me with a mental hang over or give me more anxiety.

    1. I want to enjoy what is happening. Anything happening too fast takes that way, most of the time. But there are times when it works. But I need to know that before hand and be on board with it.
