Hooray for moonlune. I think that attitude is sweet in general. I've been trying to walk slower lately, such a small thing, but it feels good. Constantly chasing the next big thing sucks, walking slow means everything becomes a big thing.

I do everything twice as slow as people around me do. I don't think it's a good thing but it's just how I am so I won't expect too much from myself.

Embrace it. People who hurry over everything are often either lost in castles of the future, or stuck somewhere in a better past.

I'm the exact opposite as you, I'm always doing, and doing as effectively as possible. On the good days, it's awesome; on the bad days, when the life I've set up expects me to keep up the pace, it's really very shitty.

Something about this hit me just right. A rushed life is a life lived on another's time. I'll take my time with my afternoon tea. There is no other moment but the now.
