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 rideJames 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.
