being or doing

As the Holidays roll around, and the pace of life seems to get even more hectic for some, I like to challenge people to think about this: Are you happy being? Or are you happy doing? 

For many years I was happy doing, doing, doing.  I was doing so much that if one event in my day didn’t go as planned, it sent me into a tailspin.  What eventually happened was that all my doing exhausted me and I began to resent having to do almost anything.  As I started to balance out my personality I explored ways of being that did not require “doing” anything.  This experience opened my eyes to a whole new world. Not only did I start to crave doing a lot less, I actually found that I enjoyed life a lot more by doing less.   In addition, as I got better at being, I decided I will no longer do what I do not want to do.  It is that simple.  The reason?  I have found that if I “force”myself to do something I don’t want to do, it has an adverse effect on my being.  Since I strive for being peace, love and joy I have no choice but to do only what supports this…with apologies to nobody.

I encourage you to ponder this concept of being versus doing.  What balance works for you? Honor your voice.  I support you 1000%!
