A sigh of contentment

Did you ever find yourself in complete utter peace where your mind is at a restful state? Have you ever sat still to look at the colorful leaves that fall on a brisk Autumn day and become mesmerized by the beauty that nature brings? Even if your circumstances aren’t favorable at the moment, have you tried taking a break from yourself?  I have moments of clarity when I’m able to sit still for longer then fifteen minutes. It can make a difference with how I continue about my day and how I communicate with the rest of the world. Wouldn’t it be awesome if it was mandatory to take an hour break for “you” on top of the hour lunch you should already be getting from your work day? I think the world would be a better place simply because the over worked and under paid American people would be rested and dare I say, possibly “content”? The fact that we are a society that is money driven and most of us are driven to ‘just survive” in this day and age is the unfortunate truth. Sad, isn’t it? It really doesn’t have to be that way with you. I ask that you grab those moments when you can……  take a break from yourself. Work, kids, bills, obligations all can wait for a few minutes longer. Dare yourself to take care of yourself. I’m sure you’ll have no regrets. Trust that something good will come from taking time to sit still, sigh and be content for what is and what will be.

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
