Time to Stop and Reflect

Les Henson

Life can be so busy with hardly any time to stop and think. We rush here and there at an alarming pace. Our schedules are jam-packed with few or no gaps. It is hardly surprising that our lives are so unproductive and often lack meaning. It might just be time to slow down, to stop and think about the things that matter most in our lives. Rather, than hurtling along at such an alarming pace.

Doing more does not equate with greater productivity, nor does it correlate with greater fulfilment or meaning in life. We need to make the space within our schedules to slow down and stop. Taking the time out from our busy lives, to reflect and meditate upon that, which is vital to our lives, wellbeing, and to those we love is of great significance. We need to make space to build meaningful relationships rather than continually passing like ships in the night. It was Socrates who said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” Let us take time to work through who we desire to become and above all who God would have us be. We may think that we have plenty of time for such things when we get a little bit older, but time passes so fleetingly that the only time we truly have is the present.
