a reminder to pause

I’ve felt glued to work for weeks, it feels as if there hasn’t been forward progress on my projects either.

This morning, I took myself outside without any swatches or my laptop. I sat and paused to absorb the sights and sound of nature around me.

Blue August sky with trees in full green leaf taking most of the view.

While the heat and humidity quickly became a new challenge (not to mention the mosquitoes), I feel much better for the fifteen minutes I sat without working … or worry. I have a renewed focus and desire to make progress on that pile of swatches.

Have you taken a chance to pause today?
