Willow's Ramblings...

This morning I was talking to a friend, telling him that I made a blog post on February 9 after being inspired by Donna Maria’s article, “The Power of Pause”. I had every intention of taking a few moments everyday for myself.…just a few moments to meditate, maybe practice yoga,  take a walk,  write in my gratitude journal…something other than work  or taking care of family– no phones, no computer, just me and some quiet time.

I told my friend that I had even put my favorite guided meditation CD on my desk where I could see it every day to remind me to take a break. At that point, I still hadn’t gotten back in the habit of pausing or taking advantage of a little “me” time.

A few hours after our conversation, I came upon this quote…

“Every morning you are handed 24 golden hours. They are one of the few things in this world that you get free of charge. If you had all the money in the world, you couldn't buy an extra hour. What will you do with this priceless treasure? Remember, you must use it, as it is given only once. Once wasted you cannot get it back.” Anonymous

I decided that today was the day I had to start! So I took a few moments and wrote in my gratitude journal and spent some time reflecting on those things that I am grateful for…one of those things being that I have the choice on how to best use those 24 golden hours we are given in everyday.

I’d love for you to share your favorite ways to pause and how it makes you to feel to take that time for yourself.
