Taking a pause does not equal defeat

There is something bright and beautiful inside of you. I call this your-Self or Spirit. You may call it something different, the important thing is that it is inside of you and it is aware of your needs and dreams.


This bright and beautiful thing is shining from inside of you, to everything that you are, and everything outside of you.


It is like you are a beaming beacon of light.


You hold this light within a body that needs proper rest to accompany the light that you are in your adventures.


Some things may come easily your way, while those you need to address to unlock your full potential may take a bit more dedication and time.


Sometimes, to untie what is blocking your development, you may need to pause, take a step back, and observe from a different angle.


So taking a pause is not dropping the ball, it’s not loosing it, it’s not reluctance to carrying your own weight... it does not mean failing.


Taking a pause is valid and it is ok to do it whenever you feel like so.


It allows you to see things under a different light. It’s retreating to observe, ponder, rethink your strategy, and face things in a different way.


If you want something different to happen, try taking a pause.


When I feel like recharging, I like to retreat with a cup of herbal tea 🍵 and surround my-Self with things I love. That way I feel safe enough to go inside, sit unconditionally with my-Self, ponder on what has been happening, and ask for guidance.


Sometimes, this takes me some minutes, as I breathe in and out for centering and clarity, or a little longer when I take a walk to help me see things differently.


Sometimes, though, it can take me a whole day, even a weekend, if I realize I need to do some shedding. I may retreat to be with my-Self, question, reflect, meditate, reset, reconnect, and start again.


What about you?


Don’t feel regret for taking a pause. It has nothing to do with laziness, procrastinating, or becoming old.


A pause can be an opening in the middle of confusion and chaos, a door to other options and choices.


Give me a 🌬 below if you will honor the light that you are by taking a pause when you feel like so.
