I needed to reset my mental and spiritual state (something that happens often). So I decided to sit on my steps to journal with the door open to enjoy the outdoors while still being indoors. I was focused on the beauty of nature, the sunshine, the breeze in the trees, and taking deep, full breaths. I started writing a poem and decided they were lyrics. "Pause" was coming to fruition.
"Pause" is my first self-produced song. Singing this song and listening to it reminds me to be grateful for everything that is. It reminds me to focus on the beauty that is always here. I hope it does the same for you.

Lyrics

Sometimes there’s too much focus on what I lack
Completely losing sight of all I have
Problems arise to trip us on our path
When things may not be perfect
And I wonder if it’s worth it
I must Be still, take a moment to see

Sometimes I just need to pause
Open my eyes to the awe
Breathe slowly and fully
Search for the beauty
In my soul or a friend
In how the trees bend
Feel the breeze on my skin
Take it all in
And Pause, oh 

Frustration can be a common theme
When I'm out chasing all my dreams
Surrounded by naysayers it seems
When things may not be perfect
And I wonder if it’s worth it
Be still, take a moment to see

Sometimes I just need to pause
Open my eyes to the awe
Breathe slowly and fully
Search for the beauty
In my soul or a friend
In how the trees bend
Feel the breeze on my skin
Take it all in
And Pause, oh

There’s so much in so little
Like tears when you laugh
The music in a giggle
From a child on your lap
These are the moments
True riches of life
Pause, take the time
Don’t let them pass you by
Slow down
Slow down

Sometimes we all need to pause
Open our eyes to the awe
Breathe slowly and fully
Search for the beauty
In your soul or a friend
In how the trees bend
Feel the breeze on your skin
Take it all in
Pause, oh pause
