He was always busy, curious, and keen to move from activity to activity, regularly. Projects were moved through, quickly. From one to next, without a breath.
So I taught him something worth doing. To Sit, And Admire, before moving on, to the next thing.
To Sit, and Admire. A ritual. Celebrating.
To give thanks for what he had done. To appreciate what he had achieved. To pat himself on the back, and honestly critique.
To Sit, and Admire.
And to learn from each achievement. To take in the aroma of the wonderment of each project.
The conclusion, and the pause. The ending, for a new beginning.
Easter is a great symbolic reminder of end, and renewal. A chance to pause over the weekend. Honouring the process of closing an old chapter, for beginning anew. A timely opportunity to partake in a life review.
Considering what you have learned, where you have grown, what you have achieved, and gratefully taken on.
A conscious pause. To savour. Before moving on. Before going beyond, where you have been. To say goodbye to what was. And to welcome a new life chapter in.
As the end of the first quarter of 2016 is nearing, you may wish to consider where your footsteps have been.
Sit, and Admire. How far you've come.
1. What are you most proud of? In outer achievements, and inner dialogue.
2. What have you learned? In lessons, and blessings, and views.
3. Where will you next head? For more satisfaction, and happiness.
Sit, and Admire. And Celebrate. And have a lovely Easter weekend.
