This topic came up once again this weekend, so I thought it might be good to share……
We all need to slow the fuck down! The glorification of “busy” is rapidly killing us, stifling our soul connections with people and, let’s face it, making us no fun at all!
After being told by my naturopath last year that I was barreling head first into an auto immune attack I took a good hard look at my life and how I was spending my time. I was busy. Not always productive…..but BUSY!
I had no time for my friends, little connection with my family, my health was waning, and not nearly as engaged with my business as I should be for the quantity of my time that was occupied.
Soooooo, I was busy doing everything BUT making time for what mattered. Doesn’t that sound absolutely ridiculous?????
So I made some changes….each morning when I walk my dogs…..no Facebook, no answering phone calls, no emails on my phone. Just this:
I booked time in my schedule to be present, to observe my beautiful surroundings and just listen….listen for the universe to whisper my direction, to open my heart to creative ideas, to read an inspiring book. Notice I didn’t say I “should” do these things. I MADE time for them.
My house would sit a mess, phone calls would go un-returned and I learned to say no to things that didn’t fit my new mantra: if it feels good and it’s the right thing, do it.
I also learned to take cues from this beautiful girl.
When she is happy and healthy, so am I. I play more, laugh more, and amazingly enough accomplish WAY more when I slowed down.
Take it for what it’s worth and SHINE ON beautiful people!!
