Sometimes in life, we want to hit the pause button. That could mean pausing in the moments that turn into our favorite memories. It could mean to sneak in a few extra minutes of a nap before getting up or it could just mean pausing in your own journey through life. There’s nothing wrong with hitting the pause button for those reasons or any other reason you may have.
It comes to no surprise that life can just be tough. We’re constantly trying to find things to make us happy, doing the things that seem to make us happy and tirelessly trying to keep up with everyone else. It seems like we’re all pretty good at making our lives look so perfect on screen, but may actually be struggling to keep up in the real world. But who actually says we need to keep up with everyone else? The answer might just shock you, but…we do! (crazy, right?)
Let’s hit the pause button right here..
Life doesn’t start when you choose to do the things that are becoming a popular trend. Life really starts when you decide to do the things you want to do because that’s what makes you happy! Don’t let the noise of the outside world decide where and what you’re going to be. Pause, listen to your spirit and follow the way it guides you.
Lets hit the play button now..
Do all the things that make you happy and work towards the things that’ll bring you more happiness. The days where we feel a negative shift in who we are, pause.. Do the simple things that’ll bring you back to YOU and to your purpose in life- we know ourselves best! When that’s all said and done, hit that play button and keep playing the game of life as best as you can!
It’s not only moving that creates new starting points. Sometimes all it takes is a subtle shift in perspective, an opening of the mind, an intentional pause and reset, or a new route to start to see new options and new possibilities. -Kristin Armstrong
