“Follow what delights your heart and you’ll inspire the world. Lisa McCrohan, -LCSW-C, RYT”
I don’t know about you, but I get lost on a regular basis. I’m not talking about your typical getting
turned around and losing 5 minutes lost. I’m talking about the I don’t trust the GPS and sorta know
where I’m going but am now on the other side of town, kinda lost. And when you combine that with
my hungry & complaining”Are we lost AGAIN!?!?!” kidddos and a time deadline, the stress & anxiety
go through the roof! Before I know it, I’m going 80 right past the exit and have to go around yet again!
(This is usually the point where try to convince the kids that we could have more fun at home than at
that Chuck-e-Cheese birthday party!)
Have you ever felt that way on the path to your purpose? Like you are going in circles & coming up
against the same issue every time?Or that you are running so fast in so many directions that you’re
burned out & just want to give up?
This my friends is when it’s time to …P-A-U-S-E.
Pause and take in the AMAZINGNESS that you are for even embarking on this journey & having made
it this far… Pause and reflect on where your heart really yearns to be…Pause and chart a course to get
it there… Pause and know that you will get there at the right moment, at a speed that works for you &
with the proper knowledge. Pausing doesn’t mean procrastination or giving up. It’s the complete opposite.
It means you are secure enough in your purpose to know that it will always be yours, as long as you are
moving toward it. It’s not hinged on whether you have a family or a full-time job. Its not a frantic &
exhausting race to some imaginary deadline in 2020. A short pause can give us clarity, a new perspective
& a renewed energy to return to & stay on the road to our purpose!
And sometimes, you just need to pull into a rest stop to get a 64 oz Slurpee & Jolly Ranchers for yourself
& a bathroom break, a juice box, crackers & a cheap-o toy to distract the kids while the GPS re-routes, yet again…
because the kids aren’t convinced that home was a better option
Until next time,
Wishing you Love, Laughter and OOGOBS of PEACE.
