Selfie Taking Pause – DoWoo #56/365

These few days have been a time of firsts.  First time going away on business for my new MLM. Fist time to be in the immediate presence of so many people of like mind and teachings (outside of training). First time spending significant time (3.5 continuous days) with a group of people who are not immediate related. First time to consciously take time to listen to others.

Whoa….that last one is a biggie for me – something I wish to truly improve. Upon reflection I recognize I did not do as well with this as I had thought.  Better than I would have before but not as good as I had wanted to.  I had not been as consciously aware enough. You need to be “in the moment” aware in order to benefit from the full impact of each moment.

I L.O.V.E – LOVE it – when the Universe re-arranges multiple aspects to point out a particular lesson we are in the midst of needing to learn  RIGHT NOW!

OK – stay with me here for a moment.

I have a picture in my mind of who I am.  Who I truly am BEING in this world, in my specific period of time – my life.  One of the aspects I need to learn is to be is more aware.  Be in the moment. Then to recognize the signs being shared by the Universe to drill the message home. I was personally present on Saturday to hear John Maxwell speaking on 3 laws within his book “15 Invaluable Laws of Growth”.  The 3rd being the one which resonated most.

After sleeping off my travel I sat down to write my DoWoo.  I opened my phone reader to John Maxwell. and it was left where it was last read – within the chapter on Reflection.  This section outlines the Power of Pausing

20141025_130710I got to thinking….

  • In order to grow one must learn
  • To learn one must adjust
  • Adjustment results from pausing
  • One needs to pause in order to reflect
  • Reflection requires being aware
  • Awareness is required in the moment.

Awareness. Reflection. Pausing. Adjusting. Learning. Growth.

I take pause.

My new life begins, as a new me, being more aware.  That same day I heard John Maxwell, I took my very first “selfie” at Long Beach, CA.

AND so my new life begins.

    Carolynn, what a powerful post and reminder for us all to take the time out to pause and reflect. The hamster wheel can wait, and we have an option to getting off of it every once in a while. I am so pleased and proud that we met on this journey and now get to share so many experiences along the way. Blessings to you always.
