Choose to Stop

“Slow down, you move too fast

 You’ve got to make the morning last.

Just kickin’ down the cobblestones,

Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy”

- Simon and Garfunkel The 59th Street Bridge Song


  • I forgive myself for believing I have to keep pushing.
  • I give myself permission to just be.
  • I can push, or I can just be. I can’t do both at the same time, so I consciously choose to “just BE”.
  • I am free to unplug form email, voice mail, texting, TV… and just be with myself – take a nap, go for a walk, curl up and read a book.
  • I know how good it feels to just Be…it happens when I listen to Simon and Garfunkel’s The 59th Street Bridge Song
  • The only one who can Be me is me…I am just Be-ing me.


It’s whimsical, it’s fun and it will take all of three minutes and 12 seconds…go ahead. Choose to stop and give a listen to what’s REALLY important!
