Has the pause button been pressed in your life?

Do you ever feel that someone has pressed the pause button on your life? Maybe you’ve pressed it yourself to have a breathing space. What do you do?

  1. Engage in frenetic activity to make it work again?

  1. Let go and if you have faith ‘let God’?

Now that’s easier said than done, whether you are a person of faith or not. It is a strong person that can feel their whole persona shed the burdens and just let fate take over. Scary!

                Once it’s been pressed, then it will be impossible to stop the flow of exciting new ideas and themes. Just thinking about them fills me with anticipation and pleasure, driving away the light headed emptiness.

  2. Just writing about how I felt seemed to release me somehow. It’s hard to explain. All the best

    @riduna It’s about focus, I think. Your blog has such a wide aperture it takes focus to zoom in & frame a subject that clicks 2 blog about?!

    sometimes it can be scary not knowing if the person who pressed ‘pause’ might forget to come back to press ‘play’
