The Value of the Pause

From time to time, we all need to take pause, a brief stillness, a moment to review "our initial reaction so we can move to the place where a calm, thoughtful response is born." – L.R. Knost

So many of our actions could be improved and so many problems could be avoided if we simply paused to think and feel what the best course of action is. It is the difference between reacting and responding.
