Pause … breath in, breath out


Feel better?

If not repeat!

When life is too much – of too much,

it’s probably because

its too much of too much!

So what are you going to do about it?

A Very Kicked Back Cat!

I’m thinking it’s time for a break. Ease up on things. relax, wind down.

It’s your life we’re talking here. How about being good to yourself

… for a change!


“Live in the moment my friends
so when those good moments happen
you’re ready to enjoy them!”
~ Penny L Howe, 2013

Yes, for those of you who have started to follow A Penny for your thoughtsΒ this quote was taken from today’s post. I guess I really wanted to make a point to as many as possible about our need to relax a little bit more in our too busy daily lives! I hope the point was made, be good to you – you’re worth it. Going crazy from living an insane pace isn’t.

    • Hi Jadi, no we don’t, do we? The teenager holding franky (cat) was also napping, I captured them both asleep, she requested not to have her face shown, however she appeared as blissfully relaxed (in that moment) as he did! Thank you for stopping by for a visit and taking you time (a precious commodity) to comment, ver appreciated by me!

  1. I been working so much, just reading this post, relaxed me. I will take breaks through the day, thank you Penny for reminding us of something so simple.

    • I’m not taking a break right now Ute, this was a message for some of my excellent blogging friends who I sense have been working their backsides off recently in their daily lives. Reminding them to stop a little and relax. I’m enjoying the blogging experience with people, just like you, right now and have no plans for a break in the near future, But thank you for your loving thoughts, they are very much appreciated by me! Much love to you, xo

  2. Hi Penny! This was a great post and I so loved that cat. I’m with Alastair…I for one will miss you! But everyone needs a break every now and then. Hope you had a great day, Penny. πŸ™‚ Hugs Paula xxx

    • Not going anywhere Paula. Right now I’m lovin’ the online experience! My posts are for others who need to be reminded to relax. Hugs to you also my friend! πŸ™‚ xx

      • Being Bipolar, I always need to be reminded of this one! Lol
        I am that person that can get lost in my own thoughts. I try really hard to centre myself. Hugs Paula xxx

        • Balance in life is darn hard, Paula. For all of us. Something I’ve worked on for myself for quite a bit. There are just “those” days. And I know you know what I mean, but I have my little mantra, and it usually does the trick, I stay very grateful for what I do have. Much affection to you my friend, Penny xx

  3. I thought it sounded familiar. I thought I was having a case of deja vu.

    It is definitely something that needs to be seen by as many people as possible.

    Are you really going to take a break from blogging? I will understand if you are, but you will be sorely missed,.

      • Yay πŸ˜€

        I am having to cut down on blogs I read every day as I am having no time to myself. Telling someone I can’t be their friend today didn’t help either, although it will be in the long run.

        I am frazzling my brain at the moment. I feel I am being pulled in so many directions, with no time. Oh well, it will sort itself out soon

        • You do read quite a few Alastair, and even if you skip a day and don’t visit each one every single day, they all know you need to have a life too! As do they! It will sort itself out, remember to be good to you! You’re the only you that you have! πŸ™‚

          • My kids are off school next week and down at their mothers so I may take a break for a couple of days, although I know I would feel guilty for not visiting some people, especially the ones that I always visit no matter what. Yes, I am the only one I do have and the only one I will have. so I will try my best to be good for me. The smurf and the sociopath have shown me that it is almost impossible to trust. But I digress, if I don’t visit your blog next, I apologise in advance as I will be taking a day or so off

Thank you for your thoughts!
