pausing for clarity

can you pause to listen? see? taste? smell? oftentimes, i find myself wrapped up in looking ahead. i worry and stress about performance and productivity. am I doing enough? producing enough? after years of moving through days quickly and sometimes agonizing over what is to come, i relish in pausing.

a set of questions i ask myself seasonally, help me ground myself again.

where are you going?

what are you doing?

where is your home?

where were you born?

the answers to these questions don’t always change, but they always offer a moment of clarity before i continue moving forward.
