The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time

There ain’t nothing to it

Any fool can do it

Nobody knows how we got to

The top of the hill

But since we’re on our way down

We might as well enjoy the ride

James Taylor

As I reflect on James’ words, I am reminded of an equally important corollary, the power of the pause. 

Pause and notice what is around us

Pause and consider before responding

Pause and reframe what we hear

Pause and consider an alternate point of view

Pause for perspective, Nobody Died.
