Slow It Down!

With all the goes on in NYC sometimes it is hard to kick-back, relax and enjoy what the city has to offer besides for the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Today I decided to do just that, leave all my thoughts behind and take in a gorgeous Fall day in NYC.

I stopped right by Madison Square Park, at Benvenuto Cafe for some coffee (also a great salad place...) I took a seat with a book in hand just enjoying the freedom of standing still while the people around me were moving at a pace only NY-ers can.

The book I had just picked up from the library seemed to be fitting of my need to step back for a moment. The chosen book: How Coffee Saved My Life  by Ellie Roscher documents the travels of an American overachiever who decided to slow her life down and volunteer for a year in Uruguay.

"Forget, Regret, Life is yours to miss. No other road, no other way there's no other day but today!"
