Why do we sometimes pause for a second?

A span within which we do hours worth of thinking.

Triggered by the most ordinary things

we find ourselves in a time which stops ticking.

And in these seconds we actually live our life

more than we have been living

for there is something about these pauses

which keeps us believing.

At the sight of something we wish

or in the hope of something we desire,

perhaps in the figment of our own imagination

these pauses trigger and acquire, minds

which are rendered rejuvenated and yet tired.

Maybe these pauses count as our lifetime

and the rest of the time is for catching up.

Why do we sometimes pause for a second?

    1. Oldest lines in the book: Positive and Negative thoughts are how we see them and act on them.
      Pauses are times when we take a moment and detach from all that is trying to distract us and just think about something.
      Ask yourself this: How much do you really think about a moment? How much are you thinking about this moment?
      Thoughts are how we want them to be, so the question of good or bad goes for a toss here.

      It is all about celebrating those moments when we actually think.
