Somewhere along the way it seems people have started to value the rush of life. The hustle and bustle is what we crave all while demanding a quick and instant response to everything. Texts and emojis are a great example of this. While quick and easy, texts can be hard to decipher and easily misinterpreted. We want everything “now” but are unhappy if things don’t turn out right.
Pausing to reflect prior to responding adds weight to our words and value to our decisions. A pause, whether long or short, provides a moment to consider how our words and actions can either heal or hurt. The power to empathize is found in our pause. The ability to move with excellence is again in the pause. How can you implement and appreciate the pauses in your life?
