Mini tutorial 3: Slow down

For day 3 we’re brush lettering!

I received an email from a business coach I follow this week, in which she shared the following text that really resonated with me.

And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.

And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.

And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.

I like these words, because it makes us look at the current corona crisis differently. While this is no doubt a devastating situation with many losses in multiple ways, it’s also a healing one. There’s so much we can learn if we just slow down and take the time. If we stay in, read books, make art and really think about what we want. And there’s so many new business ideas and innovative new ways of connecting that arise because of this! While the actual earth is healing too. There’s fish in the clear canals of Venice, and air pollution went down by 30% in China which will prevent thousands of deaths. As scary as it is, maybe this is a much needed pause that we all need, to heal and grow and be stronger together in the end.

Anyway, that’s why we’re brush lettering the words ‘Slow down’ today. Please find the supplies and instructions below.

So far my thoughts for today. I hope you enjoyed this one and if you haven’t signed up for the tutorials in your mailbox yet then you can do so below. Take care!

Lots of love,
