Hit the Pause Button

When I was a school principal, a fourth-grade student once said to me, "Oh, Mr. B., I wish life had a 'fast-forward' button."

"Well, Harmony," I replied, "when you get to be a little older, you'll wish it had a 'pause' button."

It does, you know.

Pause throughout the day and remember what's important.

Pause and look around.

Pause and listen to somebody.

Pause and savor a cup of tea.

Pause and listen to a cricket.

Pause and remember a long-gone loved one.

Life moves fast enough. But that doesn't mean you can't hit the 'pause' button whenever you want.

Do it. You'll be happier.
