Wordless Wednesday – Pause


Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!


When was the last time that you just stopped in the middle of the day – in the midst of whatever was going on around you – and just paused?

Humans seem to have difficulty untangling themselves from the things they get caught up in – but kitties thrive on pressing the pause button and taking time out of our busy schedules to unwind, breathe and relax!

Take a few moments each day to press the pause button during your busiest moments – center yourself – take a deep breath – and notice what’s going on in your inner and outer world. Stretch and take a walk. Relax and ponder on these thoughts:

Life is a dash.
Pause in the present.
Enjoy this moment.

– J.R. Rim

The moment you stop and look around,
You will get to know that you have so many
Small moments full of happiness.
So just be thankful, as many others don’t have these moments.
There are also some who do, but can’t visualize them;
And even some who have, but can’t appreciate them.

– Vikrmn, 10 Golden Steps of Life

Whatever phase of life you are in,
Make time to pause and reflect where you are heading to.
It is a good time to insert a comma now and realign yourself
To your inner self before your life ends in a full stop.

– Roopleen

A pause gives you
breathing space
so listen
to the whispers
of the real you
waiting to happen.

– Tara Estacaan

Sometimes you need to press pause to let everything sink in.
– Sebastian Vettel

It takes 21 days to cultivate a new habit. Can you press the Pause button for a few minutes each day for the next few weeks until this become habitual?

    That’s so true, Ramona. We all need to pause and take a deep breath sometimes. Tahnks for hosting, and have a wonderful day.

  5. Marie Moody says:

    Very interesting concept. Thanks for sharing. It’s always new & different here. Have a great day!

  6. lol, I am retired so I can take a pause whenever I want 😉

  7. In fact we should all pause ones in a while. It would be great if we can pause everything but then again how realistic would that be.

    Hope you are having a great week!

  8. I know how to pause, just like you, Megallan and I learn Granny every day to do so too and I have to admit she is getting there 😉 Pawkisses for a Relaxed WW 🙂 <3

  9. Mother of 3 says:

    I try to pause each and every day; just to take a moment to read a chapter in a book I like or to take a walk and just look around at the trees and nature. It’s not easy with three kids always underfoot but I sure do try.

  10. Keiths Ramblings says:

  11. Remembering to pause, breath and take a moment for yourself is so important. Great reminder.
    Thanks for hosting the hop!

  12. Robin says:

    It is hard to find time to relax every day. Stress has been really high for a lot of people lately. I hope that everyone can calm down now and enjoy the holidays. Cats are great at being peaceful! We have a lot to learn from them.

  13. That is so great. We all need to do that. It will make for a better us.

  14. Sarah says:

    Psalms 46:10,11
    Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

    If we are never still and “pause” we may never know that God is God! Thank you for your thoughts Joy.


  15. Gracie says:

    Such a beautiful photo of you. You could earn lots of $$$$ by being a model.

  16. Ellen Pilch says:

    Magellan is a handsome boy.

  17. Jean Dion says:

    I have a lot of trouble pushing pause. Yoga helps me a lot. I take three classes per week, and I find that hour of stretching and breathing and growing helps me more than I ever thought possible. I recommend it!

  18. Linja in VA says:

    Good quotes about pausing. We can learn a lot from watching pets.

  19. Thanks for hosting. I need to take brakes sometimes, good for stress.
