Pause is my word for this year.

Especially with all of the emotional stops and starts we’ve all experienced during his pandemic, I need to get off that roller coaster. So, I’m going to be more deliberate about starting and stopping by pausing. Just because I’m ready for all of this to be OVER it’s not. So, I’m practicing the pause.

And sometimes, that means planning for the pause. Many in NC are preparing for winter weather this weekend. Although we’re not expecting much ice/snow where I live, we are expecting a lot of cold rain. Thanks to Tom, I have plenty of firewood.

So, this afternoon and evening, I’ll be pausing near a cozy fire with a good book and much gratitude.

How have you practiced pausing lately?
