When my car’s odometer hit car 100,000 miles I pulled over and took note. Wow, I thought, where have I traveled these last six years?

 

When my 20-year-old son orchestrated his first trip to Japan I watched his flight soar overhead in awe and wonder. When did this child become a man?

 

Many moments in life are pause worthy. Some pauses are more meaningful than others. I’ve learned to pause whenever my instinct dictates. Even if just a brief nod, I’ll stop in midstream and observe. Life’s too short to miss a moment of beauty, to re-frame a notion or learn something new.

 

Today, I stop to notice that I am following exactly 1000 people on twitter. This number may be miniscule to some, but it is mighty to me. Over the past few years I have taken my time to explore this medium and to think about cultivating a community that I enjoy waking up to. In doing so, I have now established a community of 1000 mostly kind and generous individuals from around the world, who inspire me, whom I respect and some whom I consider my friends.

 

This is certainly worth a moment of pause.
