I recently had the pleasure of traveling to the country of Belize with Brian and our newly married daughter and son-in-law. We spent most of our time on the tiny island of Caye Caulker, population approx 1,600 no paved roads, no cars, just bicycles and golf carts. What a change for all of us! The official motto was “GO SLOW”.
None of us seemed to have any problem adjusting to the island life as we spent our time doing water activities, eating, drinking coffee (of course) and most important spending time with each other and meeting new people from around the world. Now that we are back to our normal hustle and bustle schedule I find myself envious in many ways of the island life we experienced. I also realize it may not be realistic for most to have that type of experience but we all are capable of taking “go slow” moments in our life.
It is my hope that your time at Bergies can be a “go slow” moment right here in Gilbert. We work hard to create a beautiful garden for you to enjoy and I believe its a great place to take time for yourself or meet friends and associates that can give you that “escape” for a short time that our minds and bodies need. As I watched my daughter marry last month and prepare for my oldest son to do the same in June, I’m having that reality check that our lives fly by way to fast. While we can’t stop time we do control how we spend it. I have never met anyone who regretted slowing down for a period of time and enjoying most who and what you have been given in life.
Thank you again for your part in making our lives bigger and better by being part of the Bergies experience. I look forward to seeing you soon and be sure to share with me your “Go Slow” plans.
