Aren’t we just running to want more?
We never enjoy the journey but we are always on the hurry to reach the final destination and this brings all the frustration, the depression when actually we can save ourselves if we reflect upon the path, we meet some amazing souls, go by some of the most scenic views, heal because of the natural music of birds, smile a little wider because of the cute fur balls and go ahead in life like the free flowing water of the river one day at a time. .
The things you will see when you slow down is a perfect reminder for us, it makes you realise that the best of experiences are free and can only be experienced if you are at peace with yourself.. !
@nakuulmehta thank you super much for sharing what you read, it’s because of you I could start my 2019 with this masterpiece.
@haemin_sunim thanks for the things you will see when you slow down ♥️

This book is exactly what you need in those times. There are different chapters about different things like Love, Life, Future, Relationships, Spirituality, Passion etc.
The author starts each chapter with his own real life experiences followed by his quotations.
It's a great book. You don't have to read it at one go. You can pick up a certain page or a certain chapter depending upon the situation you're facing.
Also, it has drawings after each chapter that resonates with the wordings.
The writing is beautiful and so is the quality of the paper, print and cover design. The art is simple yet touching. There's a certain childlike innocence in this book that comes across very clearly and when coupled with wisdom makes for a memorable read.
