Unexpectedly we find ourselves with a new vista. It is not always comfortable, but can bring about a valuable paradigm shift. It can be thrust upon us, as is normally the case. Or we can choose it, by stepping away from life and taking creative pauses from the routine.
Like most people, I’ve had both in my life: the terrifying blank slate after a job loss or crop failure, the purposeful lengthy sabbatical to step away from work and get things figured out. But whatever the cause, I’ve found the interludes to be valuable times of growth. They have freed my mind to think in new ways and set my feet on paths I never would have followed.
If you’ve been given an unwelcome hiatus, I encourage you to quietly wait and watch and learn. You’ll discover things about yourself that will surprise you. If your life has gone along with no hiccups, you might want to consider a creative pause – time away from the people and routines that normally fill your days. It can give you a fresh perspective and a newfound joy.
