Stop, Pause, and Enjoy

We’re always rushing

It’s what most of us do with our time, the people we love, and the experiences we engage in.

We rush.

We forget to gaze upon the stars with wonder.

We forget to walk with our bare feet in the grass.

We forget to enjoy the sounds of the rain.

We forget to make eye contact and wait for a response when we ask people how they’re doing.

We forget to enjoy and savor our meals and enjoy the flavors.

We forget to say thank you and feel gratitude.

We’re always rushing.

And for what?
