I got this in a fortune cookie last weekend, and I thought it was an awesome one. So, here's a thought for this week:
Do not rush through life.
Pause and enjoy it.
How many of you slow down and take time to enjoy the many challenges, accomplishments and moments that make you smile. When your kids want to play, do you take the time to play with them? When you husband wants to just sit and hold your hand or go for a walk, do you find the time to relax and enjoy being with him? If a friend calls wanting to go to lunch, do you set aside whatever you're doing and take the time to go? Do you find the time to stop and watch the sun set and enjoy the beautiful evening?
I know its hard to enjoy the little things in life. It seems there's always so much to do that it's difficult to sit back but I hope you do. I know I'm going to try harder each day to slow down and I challenge you to do the same.
As we head into a new year, put this on your resolution list. Add it to the goals you've set for yourself. Take time to appreciate what you have. Pause now and again and enjoy your life.
Here's wishing you a great day.
Happy reading -- take time to enjoy a bood book. I plan to.
