The Wisdom is in the Pause

The Wisdom is in the Pause

I feel a deep longing for some soul-filling creative time.

I feel a deep longing for some soul-filling creative time.

I’ve been powering along at full tilt for months now, developing my business to become what it needs to be, and my body is telling me to slow the pace down. When I’m working like this, I’m not connecting fully to the things that matter most to me. Like nature, the seasons, the river where I walk, my dog and my child.

September is absolutely my favourite month and it has whizzed by in just a few tired blinks. I want to grab hold of it and beg it to stay a little longer. I’m not ready for the next turn of the year. I’m not ready to think about winter boots, and woolly hats, gloves and scarves. And I definitely don’t feel ready to contemplate that other major event that falls upon us in a few months’ time.

“The wisdom is in the pause – the universal place of stopping, the moment of reflection.”

Alice Walker

Would you like to join me for an artist’s retreat?

I’m creating a pause, called The Autumn Retreat. For myself, but also for anyone that feels like this, too, who would like to join me. Together we will invite the stillness into our daily lives, for however long we can afford to spare. Maybe it will just be 3 minutes, and if so, that’s OK. But stillness only comes if we invite it.

Throughout the month of October, I’ll be sharing pause-related posts and inspiring quotes, with a daily writing prompt to get you back to showing up at the page, if you so wish.

Join me for The Autumn Retreat throughout October

Sign up at the bottom of this page to get the gifts of the retreat delivered straight to your inbox. You’ll also receive an invitation to join The Autumn Retreat’s private Facebook group. I hope to see you there.

And if we haven’t met through Facebook, at The Writing Path, you can find out more about me here.

I look forward to finding out more about you.
