A fast-pace of life with a seemingly relentless barrage of changes and demands to keep up can leave us panting and grasping for breath. To stop peddling appears to allow the current to sweep us backwards.
We do need to take a break; to stop, step back and take time to ponder. It is not just for the sake of our sanity, it is in fact for growth, and to flourish.
I tell myself to build up this ability to pause - to explore pause-ability.
