Force Function

introspection

Take a moment to experience Emmy Rossum’s plea:

♫ Slow Me Down

Just slow me, slow me down
Slow me down, slow me down

Rushing and racing, and running in circles
Moving so fast, I’m forgetting my purpose
Blur of the traffic is sending me spinning, getting nowhere

My head and my heart are colliding, cehaotic
Pace of the world, I just wish I could stop it
Try to appear like I’ve got it together, I’m falling apart

Save me, somebody take my hand and lead me
Slow me down, don’t let love pass me by
Just show me how ’cause I’m ready to fall

Slow me down, don’t let me live a lie
Before my life flies by
I need you to slow me down

Sometimes I fear that I might disappear
In the blur of fast forward I falter again
Forgetting to breathe, I need to sleep, I’m getting nowhere

All that I’ve missed I see in the reflection
Passed me while I wasn’t paying attention
Tired of rushing, racing and running, I’m falling apart

Tell me, oh, won’t you take my hand and lead me?
Slow me down, don’t let love pass me by
Just show me how ’cause I’m ready to fall

Slow me down, don’t let me live a lie
Before my life flies by
I need you to slow me down

Just show me, I need you to slow me down
Slow me down, slow me down

The noise of the world is getting me caught up
Chasing the clock and I wish I could stop it
Just need to breathe, somebody please slow me down

If you are like me, you need a Force Function reminder to “pause” and re-claim perspective. Especially now as of us are traveling and going to visit parents, siblings and all the complexity we are working so hard to transcend.

I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving – and the best I can do is invite you to gain personal strength and clarity while you begin walking in the fresh fallen snow of winter 2013.
