Don’t Want to Miss Out?
Gift Yourself the Moment to Pause
How’s your start of September?
Maybe it’s the super warm weather we enjoyed over the holiday weekend, or the fact that we still have two full weeks of summer ahead, but I’m thinking more about my next swim in Lake Michigan than I am about Pumpkin Spice anything. 🤷🏻♀️
Lots of us (especially here in West Michigan) want to make the most of each and every blue sky moment. We continue “doing it all” so that we won’t miss out on anything.
Believe me. I get it. 😉
And, I realize that when I am going, going, going . . . I am missing out on something super necessary.
I am missing my moment to “do nothing.”
It’s when we pause that we can become calm.
And get clear.
Find that next burst of creativity.
Or necessary step towards healing.
Turns out, we need rest.
Our hardworking, fun-loving culture may not applaud us when we stop doing, but I am here to encourage you to take those moments of pause:
I believe these moments of doing nothing?
They”ll make all we do even better!
Give it a try and let me know how it goes. 🏽
Send me a favorite photo of your version of “doing nothing.” 📷
Okay, time for me to take a pause. 🥰
P.S. Voting for ArtPrize begins in 1 week, Thursday, September 14.
