Alerts, notifications, the swoosh of an email sent.
Deadlines, diary clashes, friend requests.
Your ex on Instagram.
That book you must read.
The two series you’re watching and the five on your list.
Updates from seven different group chats.
Food goals, work goals, relationship goals.
And you like it that way.
Because it’s your life, and you live it to the full.
Every minute, every hour, every day.
But sometimes it’s nice to pause.
To put life temporarily on hold.
So take a moment.
