Is it time to slow down? Everywhere I go I see people rushing. I wonder what is so important that makes them lose connection to the people around them. When I’m at the supermarket, I’ll often have a near collision with someone pushing a food carriage as if it were in a race. The same is true on the roadway, speed is of the essence. I think some folks are racing to see who can get to the next red light the fastest. Slowing down isn’t stopping, it’s more like becoming aware of what is happening around us. When we become aware of what is happening it changes our pace, much like changing the beat of the music.

I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
