Permission to Pause

 

You know what it's like to live in a whirlwind right? Like you just can't keep up with all that you have going on in your life? Well, that is me this week. I love to put 100% into everything I do, but right now it seems impossible. As I was sitting here, thinking about what to share, the thought came into my mind that I just need to relax. I just need to take in the moment and just breathe. Aren't photographs like that? Little moments paused in time. They give you a chance to look back on something that you might have otherwise missed. I like that about what I get to do for you guys. At this moment, though, I need to "eat my own words" as they say.

So this is just to say that I am grateful for when we get to pause time. I am grateful for reminders that the whirlwind can stop if we just let it. Also, make sure that you take time to breathe and take in the present. Spend time with your loved ones. Notice how they smile or how they hold you close. Take a second and look out the window during the daylight hours and see how the light plays through the branches of a nearby tree. A camera can do wonders, but so can your own view.

Let's pause together in real time. Happy weekend!
