Isn't this how we get into trouble with so many things--speeding the process up until we miss the pleasure? You don't notice your depleting bank account when you don't balance each check in the front of your book immediately. Your brain doesn't process that your stomach is full if you scarf down you food at top speed. I hardly ever get sick until the weekend when my body finally has time to relax...

Slow Down You Move Too Fast
Today I was watching "True Life: I'm In Debt" (I really love the True Life shows) and for those of you who don't know, each episode follows a few young people around with some common thread. These are completely ordinary people and the show is shot like a documentary. This episode focused on young people who had amassed a large amount of debt. The ironic thing is each commercial break featured an advertisement encouraging the viewer to give up the slow process of check writing and spend their money faster with credit cards!
