Phenomenal Friday-Sometimes You Just Have To Insert That Comma!

“Sometimes you need to press pause to let everything sink in.” ~ Sebastian Vettel

Last night I attended my daughter’s high school awards ceremony, I was enthralled by the Head Teacher’s farewell speech both the impending graduates and the school itself as she takes leave of retirement herself in a few months. Her speech hit a cord because she used a common “comma” as the subject of her speech in which she said a comma signifies a pause- “A pause to take a breath before moving.”

Stuff like this always has my mind turning. It got me to thinking. How many commas have I had in life? How many times have I paused before moving on? Our lives are filled with moments where we paused to take a breath before moving forward.

When I was a little girl,  my anticipation of becoming an adult was only surpassed by those of Christmas and my next birthday. The idea of NO school, NO curfew, NO seeking permission to stay or up late and being able to eat as much ice cream I want when I wanted was a fantastic dream that made my heart sing. Yes, being an adult was the highlight of my 12-year-old life. Then reality hit, I woke up one day and BAM! Guess what? I was adulting and let me tell you, adulthood is overrated! But wait a minute? What constitutes being an adult? Is it age? Maturity or emotional growth and stability? My childhood perception of being an adult was  totally misguided and filled with unrealistic notions.
