Stand Still!

A photo friend showed this clip on her blog. I thought it was wonderful. What a great way to show how important it is to sometimes just stand still, to push the paus button of our lives. What reflections do you make?

Have a great day! (And don’t forget to stop and smell the roses)

    Yeah! Let’s put in a little “un” in our lives. I like that, Jan!

    I’ve seen this clip before. But it does make me wonder what the people standing still would have done if their mobile ‘phone had started ringing, or if there had been a major emergency, such as a fire alarm going off during that time!

    Our lives are certainly much more “busy” than they were when we were children. We are always “on call” through our mobile ‘phones, and it seems that almost every waking moment of our lives can be filled with something, even if it’s just listening too music on an MP3 player. Sometimes these things can cause us to “tune out” from what is happening in the world around us, and this is not always a good thing.

    We also have so many more choices and decisions to make than in times gone by – life seems to have become more complicated. It reminds me of an advertisement that has recently been on television here, which says: “Since when did things grown naturally, become “exotic”. Is it REALLY possible for a handbag to cost more than car? And do we really need 36 different kinds of milk? It’s time to put a little “un” in our lives – Un-complicate, Un-worry, Un-stress”. I really like the ad – I think it conveys a nice message!
