This is the day I allowed myself to FALL. I had to. I was so off balance. I could feel doubt slowly creeping into my thoughts. I am known for knowing exactly what I want. It is one of MY strongest assets. My biggest weakness is PAUSING.
Have you ever watched a movie and pressed PAUSE? Ever thought about how long the pause would last. Well I tested this theory. I pressed Pause last night, washed the dishes, vacuum the floor, ran a bath, and soaked. I never soak in a bath. My ADHD will not allow it. I don’t eat soup either; it takes too long to finish. I like this right now! If I can’t get them right now; I PAUSE. When I pause, I don’t have the same passion of finishing it when I return to it.
Ok… Back to me PAUSING this movie. After I did all the things within a two-hour time frame. I no longer had an interest to watch the movie. Especially when it unPAUSED (not an official word) and turns off. I return to “Previously Watched” I couldn’t even remember why I chose that movie in the first place. Where was my train of thought to make me select a movie with no deep concept? Not only that the TITLE was so predictable. I hate those type of movies. Why am I talking about PAUSING and movies?
I will tell you why….
We live in a world of CHOICES. Some of our choices are thoroughly thought out, and some of our choices are emotional, careless, reckless, or even permanent. Although I can PAUSE at times; I am big on RESETTING. It’s one of the things I take the most pride in. If it wasn’t for the mentally resetting, I would still be stuck on PAUSE. So, what happens when you PAUSE and can’t RESET? Sometimes you must press PLAY and watch how it all unfolds.
If you are over 30 but under 100, you have experienced life. OR, life has experienced you. Depends on if you a glass half full, or full glass but your tank is empty. If your tired of pressing play and nothing happens, press Pause and allow your mind to Reset. I assure you Reset is almost as rewarding as upgrading your phone. You want to make sure the most things were saved; BUT you are ready to download new APPS, learn new ways, and hold something in your hand that you can take off PAUSE!
