The word this week is PAUSE
Definition: noun, a temporary stop in action or speech.
Pause has been on my mind lately.
And on this day of 9/11 let's pause to remember.
For me, I am a person that has always thought "what next". I am so focused on the "what next" that I forget to stop for a moment, pause, and appreciate what is around me. I am being reminded as I think on this word to stop, breathe, and look around me. To take in the beauty of our world, to notice the sadness of the world and just what surrounds me in that very moment.
As I go walking outdoors I am stopping to smell, look, breathe and turn around, just pause for a moment and take in "god moments".
As I walk through my favorite antique malls I pause to breathe and see the beauty around me.
Pause helps me appreciate my moments more fully and to temper my "what next" attitude.
Welcome to a new week, dear friends!
Take time to pause in each and every day.
