We Need to Stop ….


Sometimes we simply need to stop.

Occasionally we need to pause….

Once in a while, we need to slow down and breath … deeply.

Wait instead of rush.

Decelerate instead of accelerate.

Observe instead of look.

Relax instead of tense.

Forgive instead of retaliate.

Smile instead of smirk.

Let go instead of hold on.

Walk  instead of run.

Be poor in spirit instead of rich.

Pacify instead of fight.

Simplify instead of complicate.

Balance instead of go to extremes.

Accept instead of deny.

Weaken instead of strengthen.

Be instead of pretend.

Sometimes we need to acknowledge that everything ends.

Occasionally we need to accept our limitations.

And simply be who we really are….





About Noel

I am a person who has realized that the teachings of Jesus are centralized in the genuine care and service of others. I have evolved from fundamentalism to a moderate spiritual approach. I am a reflecting person who has grown to not fear doubt but to embrace it as a means to growth and increasing closeness to God. View all posts by Noel
