one moment at a time
If you "like" Finding Pause on Facebook, new posts will appear in your news feed. Or just check back here every week or so, when you find your own pause, and see if I have.
Brought to you by a beautiful boy in blue, this blog is my attempt to pause for the sweet spots--those moments, oftentimes slippery little cracks in the foundation of our daily lives--that give us pause, that don't take our breath away, but give us breath. I suppose it is a stop and smell the flowers reminder, but my name is Daisy so that feels a little cliche. And it isn't easy. I started the site almost a year before it went live, so I get that finding pause is a constant work in progress for all of us. Yet, just like those fleeting seconds at the top or bottom of your breath, between inhale and exhale, the pauses are always there--waiting for us to inhabit, explore, and experience. I hope to encourage myself, and anyone who takes the time to pause here, to find a little more pause in each day for silence, yoga, creativity, love, play, or whatever it is that restores you. Pause.
Who am I? Well, that is a long story, right? How to describe ourselves in a paragraph, in a column, in a page? Impossible. If you want to read more about me, my blogs are the place to go. Or check out my quick summary of all that I am in a few short paragraphs.
Yoga is a great tool for finding pause. Join me weekly in classes at several yoga studios in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC. My current schedule is available at Yoga Nag.
Herein lie links to others who are making time to pause:
