Just 4 letters, not a difficult word to learn…is it difficult to apply?
Really how often do you stop, yes at a stop sign, yes at a red light, I hope you stop when a turtle is crossing the road or when the red and/or blue lights are flashing in your rear-view mirror!
We stop at mirrors, we stop after slamming the wrong nail with the hammer and yes countless other times we stop, after all it is part of life.
How many times do you stop when you don’t have to? Really, think about it, have you ever just stopped to think, to listen, to look, to meditate, to drink it all in, to appreciate, to be thankful, to remember, to hope. When and/or if you do stop can you turn your brain off? Can you simply eschew all the daily, crushing, in your face have to deal with life issues, or do you find it impossible to simply enjoy being?
