Pulling Away Until Somethings Established!!!
In a life of constant moving and going we must all take a moment to P.A.U.S.E. It can sometimes feel as though this is impossible to do with so much and some many pulling at you but you have to make a decision to P.A.U.S.E.. We don’t want to be doing things just to do them we want what we do to be established.
Webster define established as:
-to make firm or stable
