Yes, business must go on. I definitely still have deadlines.
I’m usually all about momentum (“Are you crazy? Don’t stop!”)
However, in this space—today—I just want to pause my thoughts.
I want to take . . .
. . . a pause to hug my people. Really, really tightly.
. . . a pause to enjoy a bunch of completely full breaths. The kind where my belly gets really big and then I feel the air whoosh back out.
. . . a pause to thank some people who have made a difference in my life and/or my business this year with a note or a gift.
. . . a pause to think about something good I can create today, tomorrow, next year.
. . . a pause to appreciate—deeply. Not from my default place of fear that it might be taken away. But from a place where I just appreciate it in the moment it is.
Whatever your holiday is, take a nice, long pause to feel it.
This newsletter will be back, un-paused, the first week in January. Because I have a lot more ideas.
