I find that we all live in a busy world, and sometimes, all the busyness causes confusion in and around me. I realize I need to take some time to provide breathing room between me and the busyness in it all.

I find it's a good idea for the "pause". If we don't take time to pause once in a while in our life's busyness, we can easily get lost. I've been there, done that, and am not interested in doing that again. I have taken the time, periodically all my life, to stop the spinning. Every time I can think of, I came out the better person for it, when I gave myself that time and space.

So, there you have it. I pause, and make better sense in all that I want to accomplish. It's a busy world, but I don't feel like I need to be that busy in it that I can't pause and ponder more often.

I notice sometimes how some things slip right by me, and I don't recognize how paying more attention to those "some things" could make my life better and richer.

A classic example of this is when I chose to ignore the fact that my air conditioning wasn't getting the temp down in my house. Well, it wasn't working, so I would shut it down, and move on with my day. I was doing that for several weeks, and time kept marching by with no really good temps in my house until the humidity got so bad, I paused and wondered if I should get it fixed.

Well, yeah. Good idea. I have even better temps in my house now to energize me with less effort, because I finally had enough sense to make that choice. It always amazes me when I don't make some choices sooner, when it would make my life better. But sometimes, I just don't make those choices.

Well, I decided it was time for me to get on the ball and pay attention more to happenings like this--you know, the ones that do make my life better. I think that's a real good idea to keep paying attention to what I like and want. :)

Life is Good! I'm paying attention, making fewer mistakes these days. Serendipity is all around me, so a lot of treasures are showing up. It's fun! We like that.

I find that things are moving so fast on our planet earth these days. I like to take a few moments to look at what I've learned, the mistakes I made, learn from them, and make a point to do it all better the next time. It's seems to me like that's what living rich is all about.
