It is important to take a pause
Do you pause and look back? Do you rethink what you have been doing and recalculate your moves? Does pausing in between help you take better decisions? Join this thread and discuss what you feel about the importance of pausing in between your busy schedule.
Today, I was wondering what I can write upon. In the process, I decided to check my profile and see where I was and what I have become (maybe to find some topics to ponder upon after assessing my thought process these years). It was like taking a pause and simply looking at past self.
How often we do that? Do we really take some time out, not every day, but once in a while, and look back? It is not important to always rethink your actions, but sometimes it is a good habit of recalculating yourself. I used to do the same and in fact, I do it quite often.
Let me explain:
I was in a rush profession couple of months back and I was doing what everyone expected me to do. I had a band and everyone wanted me to do covers, songs, and performances regularly and play this song, that song and so on. But one day, I took a break from jamming (as I was not enjoying, all the tension for booking, Guitar practices etc.). I checked the reason behind the same. I realized I couldn't visualize myself playing or doing a playback singing for a career. I was happy looking at myself as a charity performer, but not as a professional performer. It took me a while to fix things and that pause, and rethinking really helped me.
I can say, I am more than happy at playing in old age homes here as it relaxes me and serves a purpose. I can see myself enjoying music like this for a longer time.
There is my story. How often do you take a pause and recharge? Do you have any similar experiences?
