“God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it, or use it for good, but what I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.”
- Heartsell Wilson
You live in an over-stimulated society. You rush from school to practice, to a job, to homework, and then to the mall for a soft drink—all in the same afternoon. All of the things you’re involved in may be great, but sometimes you just need to push the “pause” button. You need to stop and smell the popcorn. You need to chill out once in a while.
Your body needs it. Your teen years are times of accelerated growth. Your body is in high gear, and it’s going through tremendous changes. Once in a while you need to stop long enough for your legs to keep up with your arms! Times of relaxation allow your cells to regroup and rest for the work ahead.
Your mind needs it too. Sometimes it’s on overload. Homework, scripts, songs, plays, PIN numbers, cell phone numbers— you have a lot to think about. Sometimes you just need to stop thinking. Relax. Put your mind in neutral. It has a long trip ahead of it.
Enjoy your life; you only have one!
