Do You Take The Time?

Do you take the time to say ‘bless you’ to a stranger on a plane who has just sneezed?

Do you take the time to hold the door for someone many steps behind you?

Do you take the time to read to your children?

Do you take the time to walk your neighbourhood at sunrise?

Do you take the time to answer that email or voicemail?

Do you take the time to give the panhandler a couple of bucks?

Do you take the time to marinate in the moment?

Do you take the time to re-evaluate blurred lines?

Do you take the time to thank those who knowingly assist?

Do you take the time to push boundaries?

Do you take the time to address problems, large or small?

timeDo you take the time to process failures?

Do you take the time to sing with the birds?

Do you take the time to release the fear, to embrace the unknown?

Do you take the time to recognize everything’s gonna be alright?

Do you take the time to take the time?

    Taking the time to be present in the moment, take in all that is around me, and be curious, is one of my themes for this year. Thank you for the gentle reminder my friend.
