Pause long enough
to plant a seed and watch it grow.
Pause to smell
the bright flower that attracted your attention.
Pause be kind
to everyone who crosses your path.
Pause to smile
even when you are hurried and harried in your life.
Pause to appreciate
what you have and stop longing for what you don’t.
Pause to notice
the silence of a quiet afternoon as you are restored.
Pause to pick up
the piece of trash on the street, even if it isn’t yours.
Pause to play
with your children, especially when they are young.
Pause to show interest
in the live’s of your teens, even when they might seem disinterested in you.
Pause to think
about your life and what is important.
Pause to make
Pause to live.
