This will be my third year carrying a little word around with me wherever I go. I began in 2017 with JOY and ADMIRE in 2018. Both words caused me to pause and notice things around me that I may have ordinarily missed.
Joy and admire helped me to realize that pausing is important. By nature, I keep myself pretty busy- professionally and personally. I’m beginning to see the value, in hitting the time out button in order to make time for the things I truly value.
My one little word for 2019 is PAUSE. Pause will remind me to continue to admire and find joy. It will also remind me that it’s ok to slow down-saying yes to those things that will add to the joy, and no to what might just be too much. I will also carry pause with me to remind me to breath, to take one moment at a time, and to stay present for the people I love.
So here is to 2019…and pausing to see all that it has to offer.
