Gift of time

Give yourself the gift of time. Slow down to the pace at which life’s richness can keep up with you.

Give yourself time to take in and enjoy the beauty in every place, every moment, every person. Give yourself time to connect with all that’s meaningful in your life.

Enable yourself to go far beyond first impressions. Look past the flashing colors and fleeting shadows and see the truth that’s really there.

Spend sufficient time thinking through the consequences that will come from your choices. Give yourself the time to consider what might be hidden from view.

Enjoy and benefit from the value of stillness with a calm and confident demeanor. Breathe in, breathe out, step forward, keep going at a pace that gets you there without wearing you down.

Use your time in the way it is meant to be used. Use your time to do it right, to do it well, to fully and richly live.

— Ralph Marston
