Let me confess that I don’t love to read, and I can literally count the number of books I’ve read over the past couple of years on one hand. But there was something compelling about the idea of “chasing slow” that I was immediately drawn in and knew this was something I had to do.
The scary thing for me, is that my deviation from slowness doesn’t happen overnight. The busyness sets in, like a disease, and works its way inch by inch into my schedule, my mind, and my capacity to do things as simple as love.
After reading Chasing Slow, I have a deeper understanding of who I am, and why I have the desire now to prioritize my life in a way I’ve never done before.
