To sit with…the anxious moments of life…with uncertainty and not knowing is hard.  We think if we know what’s going to happen…which is I’m possible; or in some control what is going to happen…our lives will be easier. So, we spend time keeping ourselves busy with whatever so we don’t have to feel some of the bad feelings of fear or loss that are natural in life.  The Pause Button, accompanied with a breath, can help us navigate this anxious moments.  We all have them and have to manage those internal questions about life, meaning and purpose.  Taking a moment to pause is a gift to yourself; to smell, taste, feel and see what is before us.pause
