The recent electrical storm left me with no internet service. While waiting a couple of days for a repairman, I had the opportunity to slow down and read some of my old Facebook posts. The following post seems relevant now after spending some time without the web, so I thought I would share it again.
"Chewing is important. Remember mom telling you to chew each bite 32 times? The chewing process promotes enzymes that help break down your food and aids the stomach in digestion. By spending more time in the mouth, food can more easily be digested throughout the digestive track. Stomach issues can be avoided by slowing down and letting the body do its job. Fast food and fast lifestyles were not ordained by God, the Creator.
Behold the cow. The cow slowly ruminates her food over and over until it can be digested easily and efficiently. A well-processed cow-pie easily breaks down and gives nourishment to the grass of the field.
Same goes for our everyday life. We can avoid many stress disorders by slowing down and "ruminating" our thoughts and emotions. This process allows solutions to problems whereas hastiness causes mistakes and waste. This reduces the need to repeat processes over and over to get a desired result, thus, reducing waste. So, be a healthy cow today, slow down, enjoy the sunshine, ruminate the possibilities and leave some well-processed fertilizer for those around you."
Leave a cow pie for someone today. They will step in it and share with others. By the way, if you like my posts (and my cartoon cow above), show me some love by dropping me a comment below. Your comments and suggestions only make my site better. Don't forget to visit the various galleries of my website containing a digital mix of photography and art.
