In 2019, we are a culture of go, go, go. There is no time to stop and smell the proverbial roses...or the literal roses, for that matter. If you are not #hustling 24/7/365, you are not doing it right. When there is so much to do, so much news to keep up with, so much work to do, so many social engagements to keep up with, and so many social media posts to write to broadcast how busy you are, we can often forget to stop and breathe and let ourselves actually think.
But one Twitter hashtag asked people to do just that. #IfYouStopAndThinkAboutIt had people everywhere, well, actually stopping and thinking about things for a second. And the revelations that occurred to people when they did that, about all sorts of things concerning the world we live in, will totally blow your mind. All you have to do is take a moment to stop and think about it.
Hold onto your butts.Because these are going to make you think. And ponder. And question everything you know.
