Slowing down to a halt.

It’s so strange to be in a state of limbo. It’s permeated several areas of my life, while I wait for the days to pass and the next step to reveal itself.

I’ve been spending time reading personal development blogs like Raptitude and Altucher Confidential while I wait to begin again. To start fresh. To remember what I enjoyed about my work before, and bring that into a new space once again. Hoping to be embraced and hoping to continually learn in the process.

Very few times in life do we stop and take a breath. It’s hard for me to slow down, let alone sit in a standstill for any amount of time. It’s provided opportunity for deeper reflection on my decisions, my values, and my desires.

I may have been slowed to a halt, stuck in the traffic of it all, but soon enough things will start moving along again. It’s the perfect season for such a derailment, as the winer gets even colder and the days quiet down after the holidays, maybe it’s the perfect time to say that it’s okay to just stop, ponder, and listen.

Take a moment and listen. You might be surprised by what you hear.
