Personally, I think there’s a reason to pause each and every day…to reflect on the status of life and ask myself if I feel it’s on track. But for some, every day life is too chaotic (often self induced) and pausing isn’t an option.
If you’re one of those people that can’t seem to slow down…to pause…take time to reflect…I hope today brings you a bit of peace. I hope the pace of the day leaves you with a few moments where you can stop and look around…maybe even up…and say “thank you“.
Life may not be perfect…that’s not the point of it…but there are things worthy of gratitude and appreciation in every life. Acknowledging those things…those people…might actually bring more gratitude and appreciation in the coming days…weeks…months…even years.
It’s when we can take the time — however brief — to acknowledge the good that we start to see more and more of it. And slowly but surely life begins to change.
If you do nothing else for yourself today, make the time to pause.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
