Being vs. Doing

Let today be less about doing, and more about being.

Let it be more about remembering who you are and why you’re here.

Just let it be.

Stillness births new ideas greater than action. Do take action, but make sure that you are calm, you are cool and that you’re doing it because you want to. And if it is something you don’t want to do, but know you have to, ask yourself this: What do I need to remind myself of in order to feel better about this task? What can I choose to focus on that feels a little bit better than just dreading it?

Patience.

That’s what I need more of.

Patience with myself. With the world. With the way that everything is unfolding.

I’m learning it.

Trust.

Trusting myself. Trusting that all is well. Trusting that I can do this.

I’m growing it.

Reminding.

Reminding myself of what I’ve accomplished. What it took for me to be able to accomplish it. And knowing without a shadow of a doubt that I can do it again.

Yes, I can.

Because I want to. And that wanting and that desire is greater than the stress. It’s greater than the fears that are surfacing. It is greater than my old ways, old beliefs, old…stuff.

I am being.

The absolute best version of myself that I can be.

JOURNAL TIME!

Write down and answer the following questions:

What do I need to do when I’m starting to feel overwhelmed?
What activities most nurture my patience?
How can I accept this situation + learn from it?
How can I accept myself?

 

When you’re done, take some deep breaths and wrap your mind around this:

All is well. <3 <3 <3

Bonus: Make a “to be” list, rather than a “to do” list and share it here! Who do you choose to be today?
