Those that are the hardest to love, are in need of love the most. If you have a hard time being kind to those being unkind to you, just pray for them.... It will help both of you!
It was great meeting and talking with you bright, beautiful morning. Looking forward to more insightful posts. Relax and enjoy Florida!!
I just had to share- practice the pause!💕
I took your stickers with me on the plane traveling from Colorado to New York. I carefully chose my plane seat away from loud/talkative folks & children, as I really just wanted some quiet time. Low and behold a mom and her 2 young children sat across from me (ages 2 and 4) I remember hearing the same crying in the airport, and it now was sitting next to me. I selfishly sighed and threw myself a mental pity party. "Why Me God", I thought. I just want a few hours of peace and quiet.

The little 2 year old boy fused and whined the whole trip, even threw up a few times. His mom patiently picked up the mess and in between tended to her 4 year old who felt she was not getting enough attention. It was obvious she could use a little help. It was also obvious I needed to adjust my heart.

I went into my backpack and took out a few of your stickers. I gave them to the little boy to try to occupy him while the mom finished cleaning up his mess. The little boy immediately started playing with the stickers, the little girl asked for some also, and proceeded sticking them all over her shirt. The mom looked at your stickers and laughed saying "this is just what I need, "pause breathe proceed"! In that moment I realized, no, this was exactly what "I" need!

To change an uncomfortable situation, one must change their attitude towards it. Before you can do this, you need to Pause and review the situation (don' just react, but act kindly to it), Breath, (take a fresh breath of air to get a fresh attitude), and Proceed (with acts of kindness.)

"Why Me God?" I'm pretty sure He knew what He was doing....

Thank you so much for the stickers/reminder to take the time to
Pause/Breathe Proceed. It reminds me/gives me the few seconds I need to adjust my heart and make wiser choices.
You are not only changing my life, but positively changing others.

Our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world as being able to remake ourselves.” ~Gandhi

I love it "OUT THERE"

IT IS HAPPENING!! It is good! It WILL change your life! It WILL bring you JOY! The Pause, Breathe, Proceed programs will enable you to become the author of your life story.

Some talk to you in their free time and some free their time to talk to you. Learn the difference. Who gives you their undivided attention? It is a gift.

I’m blessed to have a wonderful neighbor, Don. I love to hear his stories of the past, priceless knowledge. I always give him my undivided attention.

Everyone has a story but few take the time to listen. I double dog dare you to listen to someone’s story this week without interrupting and without distraction. How did it feel?

External feedback, welcomed or unwelcome, is actually a gift. Although it may not seem like it, it gives you a perspective of yourself from someone’s view. It lets you know what they are thinking or how they feel.

I encourage you not to react but listen and learn. I asked my husband for feedback about a situation. I didn’t like his answer, I got a bit defensive, then I sat with it. I didn’t realize I was subconsciously doing something.

Feedback is the gift of perspective outside of yourself. Don’t get defensive. Don’t react. Listen. Sit with it. Learn from it. Decide how you want to proceed but do it with kindness. It’s not easy to give feedback.

Brilliant and entertaining! Why Pausing to find the Pause-itive is so powerful!

The happy secret to better work We believe we should work hard in order to be happy, but could we be thinking about things backwards? In this fast-moving and very funny talk, psychologist Shawn Achor argues that, actually, happiness inspires us to be more productive.

Let the words you say spread love, hope, and joy. We all believe we are right. Be considerate of others and also considerate of yourself. Negative emotions created by words or thoughts can create chaos in your body and mind. Pause . Breathe . Proceed .

I was asked to share this post on the PBP business page so others could share it. If you like this post please join the Pause Breathe Proceed private group for more posts and a safe space to share your thoughts and feelings.

This struck me this morning. Why do we lie vs tell the truth. Do we fear that it will make us look like someone we don’t want to be? Do we assume the other person will get hurt? Do we not trust the other person to understand? Even if they don’t understand, they will know where you stand when your truth is spoken. The truth is individually defined.

Our words create our character. Live a life you don’t feel you have to lie about. Be proud of who you are. Speak truth, apologize when your wrong, be kind every chance you get. Love enough to speak the truth. The truth always reveals itself. The truth will set you free. Thoughts??

Your honesty turns me on.
I’d rather be devastated, crushed, shattered by your truth than you withholding and lying, and trying to pretend it’s all good.
I feel everything, so you can’t hide.
My subconscious knows it all deep down inside.
That’s why it hurts more when you lie because I always know,
so shatter me with your truth
crush me with your honesty;
devastate me with your raw heart....
I'd rather feel the pain from the truth than the pain, hurt and loss of trust from your lies.~

Pause - Slow down
Breathe - Embrace the season, relax!
Proceed - Merry and kind
Don’t let the worries of tomorrow deflate the joy of today! This moment is yours! Celebrate it ♥️

Are you flying high or hanging low? Attitude is everything! Attitude determines your altitude! Remember this motto as we head into the merry season of joy and celebration.

It hit me today that this holiday season will not be as merry as in the past. No parties to mingle at, no buzz of shopping downtown, no dress up for holiday dine outs or dancing around town.

As my attitude lost altitude I PAUSED. I was feeling low. I took a few deep breaths to get my head straight. I was at the controls. I pulled my attitude up and gained altitude. Proceed.

I ran to the garage and pulled out my Christmas decorations and got to work. We always have a choice. Choose to keep your attitude flying at high altitude. You have a better view of life with a positive attitude.

What new things will keep your holidays merry this year? Please share and spread some joy. I invite you to join our Pause Breathe Proceed FB Group for more of these thought provoking interactive positive posts :)

“I spent an hour in the bank with my dad, as he had to transfer some money. I couldn't resist myself and asked...

''Dad, why don't we activate your internet banking?''

''Why would I do that?'' He asked...

''Well, then you wont have to spend an hour here for things like transfer.

You can even do your shopping online. Everything will be so easy!''

I was so excited about initiating him into the world of Net banking.

He asked ''If I do that, I wont have to step out of the house?

''Yes, yes''! I said. I told him how even grocery can be delivered at door now and how amazon delivers everything!

His answer left me tongue-tied.

He said ''Since I entered this bank today, I have met four of my friends, I have chatted a while with the staff who know me very well by now.

You know I am alone...this is the company that I need. I like to get ready and come to the bank. I have enough time, it is the physical touch that I crave.

Two years back I got sick, The store owner from whom I buy fruits, came to see me and sat by my bedside and cried.

When your Mom fell down few days back while on her morning walk. Our local grocer saw her and immediately got his car to rush her home as he knows where I live.

Would I have that 'human' touch if everything became online?

Why would I want everything delivered to me and force me to interact with just my computer?

I like to know the person that I'm dealing with and not just the 'seller'. It creates bonds of Relationships.

Does Amazon deliver all this as well?'''

Just like that the sun came out
She Paused and took a deep breath
Her power surged
She pushed herself farther then ever
She believed in the human spirit
She lived without fear
She laughed out loud
She embraced the only moment she knew she had control over, the present moment
Making each moment great creates a past you can be proud of and a future full of hope
PAUSE . BREATHE . PROCEED!

Today just Pause and find the deep beauty in one thing. Be at awe at the simple yet complexity of what you are observing. Breathe and let the moment take you away to a place of peace, calm, and wonder. Stay there for a while. Proceed as you walk a little lighter, breathe a little easier, and smile a lot more!

Today we come together as Americans to vote for the leader of our country. This vote is not open to judgement. It is our right to vote for who we believe will be the best president.
Remember to:
Pause - check in to your body and mind. What is going on? Be aware of your feelings, keep a check on your emotions.
Breathe - find your calm. Don’t let anyone steal your peace. Keep breathing.
Proceed - in kindness and love. Let’s keep it pause-itive.
We are in this together! We are America!
Use the Pause Breathe Proceed practice throughout the day and be well.

How Much White Space Do You Have?

Pause - how much white space do you have in your day to Breathe and regroup? Give it a try today. Don't let the stress accumulate.

dailystoic.com Most of us internalize the wrong lesson. We think success = busy. We think that being busy is a sign of a good leader, an important person. Of course this is not true. A full calendar is the sign of someone who agrees to a lot of things, no more, no less. Which is why … How Much White Space Do You...
