Pause ...





“A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbor — such is my idea of happiness.” 







It's good to pause :) Every morning with my first sip of tea, I pause to enjoy the beauty of sunrise...yes,its like soaking myself in that energy and trying to absorb every bit of it.It is this moment which actually helps me to glide through the day :)






It is really really important to use that 'Pause' button as you play on the music of 'life'...to stop...to think...to feel the moment...to introspect...to count your blessings...to thank Him with a heart filled with gratitude...pause...to honor whatever you have :)




So if you did not do this today...
pause now...
smile to your heart...
capture the beauty of this moment...
celebrate for who you are...
pause...
it surely will make you feel better:)

  1. What a wonderful post and beautiful art. Your flower is amazing.

    I do use my 'pause button' ..... it keeps me sane, in a mad, fast paced world. You are so right it does make you feel better.
