I saw a tweet this morning that made me pause.
It wasn’t a negative tweet. It wasn’t one that upset me or even one that I could quote.
But the title of it was “Please pause for a minute”.
So I did.
And when I paused I realized the beauty in the pause.
We certainly need to pause more often. At least I do.
When we pause we are able to slow down and perhaps listen to someone else.
Or maybe we are able to observe something that we would have missed.
I don’t pause often enough.
It’s a good thing to pause.
A pause allows me to center myself and focus on something that may have slipped by without me noticing it.
A pause allows me to step back for just a second and reevaluate what I should say next.
A pause allows me to think before acting.
A pause allows me to encourage someone else.
A pause is just that — a pause.
A pause is a good thing.
Today I plan to take a pause. Several times. To enjoy what is around me. To think before I speak. To observe.
