Take Time

One of my favourite bookmarks is a bookmark I received as part of a prize pack many years ago (I can’t remember what the prize was for). The bookmark was hand painted by a multi-talented member of RWAust., Mary De. On the back she included this inspirational poem…

TAKE TIME (author unknown)

Take time to Work – it is the price of Success
Take time to Think – it is the source of Power
Take time to Play – it is the secret of Youth
Take time to Read – it is the fountain of Wisdom
Take time to Dream – it is the highway to the Stars
Take time to Look Around – it is the shortcut to Unselfishness
Take time to be Friendly – it is the road to Happiness
Take time to Laugh – it is the music of the Soul

In a world where we seem to always be on fast forward, always rushing from A to B, trying to get so much done and getting more behind, it is easy to forget that we should slow down and Take Time. Life would be so much nicer if we did.
