The gift of pause

“How to stop time: kiss

How to travel in time: read

How to escape time: music

How to feel time: write

How to release time: breathe…”

 

The gift of pause

Every holiday season, my mother-in-law has a friend who hosts a pause party.  A pause party?  Turns out it’s her gift to her friends to take a night off of all their responsibilities, from shopping for the perfect gift, cooking or cleaning the house to sit down for the night with friends, share a meal and a moment during the busiest of seasons.  Everyone who is invited makes the time to attend, it’s become an annual tradition.  

What a great reminder this holiday season, in the midst of it all, take a moment for yourself to pause. And reflect. And enjoy the moment.
