We live in a fast paced world. Everything is digital, messages are sent instantly and we are rushing to get to our next appointment, spin class, second job or meeting with friends because we pack so much activity into a short span of time. Our ever turning world continues to spin and we respond by maintaining our pace of putting one foot in front of the other.
But in our rush to live our lives, we may have overlooked a few important moments that deserve a second glance. We need to take the time to turn around every now and then and make sure we absorb the things that are pushing us in the direction we are going. Sometimes the moments we never give a second thought require a few more minutes of pensive consideration to see the value in that frame of time.

Stop and turn around. The view behind you may be worth that pause for reflection.
