Are you a person doing or a person being?
“We stay busy so that the truth about our lives doesn’t catch up to us.” - Brene Brown
When you have more time on your hands, you can observe more of who you are. With everyone being told to stay at home, you get a chance to see who you are without the distractions of the normal day to day life.
Personally, I’ve noticed that I am always trying to find something to do. Running my own business, I can always find more work to do or more things to learn.
When I’m not working on my business, I have the kids to distract me, along with household chores, etc.
When I’m bored, I turn on the TV, listen to a podcast, or read. I try to fill my day with things to do. I have checklists for the day and I write so many things down that I can’t possibly do them all.
Recently, I wondered why I do things all the time. I came to understand that I VALUE doing. Somewhere along the way in life, I have equated doing things with being valuable. I am of value to others if I do things and if I’m not doing something, I have lost “worth” in my eyes.
Now that I know this belief is FALSE. I can practice being more. The irony is that worth and value come from being. Being a nice person, being grounded and connected, being with one’s self, being with spirit, being the person you were meant to be.
I don’t simply want to be a human doing….. I want to be a human be-ing.
