For Those Who Wish They Had a Pause Button on Life

Do You Wish You Had a Pause Button on Your Life?

An excerpt:

Do you ever wish you could pause your life just long enough to catch up with it?

The other day I woke up and thought, “if I could just magically make everyone sleep for a month I could catch up on the cleaning, my to-do lists, and my life.” I want to get everything in order, and then take time for my soul. I need to figure out my life, my next steps, and begin…all why everyone sleeps so their are no distractions or interruptions.

I need a big, fat, PAUSE button on life.

Can anyone relate?

Well, since I can’t have one (boo), I have decided to create my own pauses amid the distractions and normalties of life. I shall do this by choosing to own my life (as Sally Clarksonsays), and be active in the life I want to live.

And why not? I’ve only got one shot at this life gig, so I sure as heck don’t want to waste it. I want to live fully alive! I want to figure out how to enjoy my children (because I don’t always).I want to wonder, and be inspired, and open my eyes to the whole world. I want to embrace the mundane and the hard. I want to live true and honest and willing.

So I will.

“It is nothing to die. It is frightful not to live.” -Victor Hugo

When You Don’t Have a Cabin or a Dog… But Are Still Called to Write

Most days, I hated writing my book.

The process felt torturous, and at the end of six months (the time I was given to complete my manuscript), I hated book writing and never wanted to do it again.

Let me back up for a minute…

I always thought that writing a book would consist of long winter days in a cabin by a fire with a dog.

Cliché, I know.

I also thought it would take a year or two to write a book. You know, really take the time to figure out your words and your story and what you want to say. I wanted time and the space to create something brilliant, something lovely, something masterful.

And then I came back to reality, broke up a fight, fed someone, and cried.

    Thanks for a great guest post today, Sarah… and for setting an example as a parent who puts her family over her passion. That’s hard, I know.
