Being more is NOT doing more.
This is a reminder to myself as I often forget to consider who my doing is allowing me to BE. I’ve been doing a lot lately and sometimes that helps to be a better me, but sometimes it ends up making a worse me. So, I need to start considering what my doing is really producing.
I’ve followed the Abundant Mama for a while no and I love her “Ban Busy” project. I’m sure she isn’t the only one with such a project, but I happen to have followed hers. I have fallen off the Ban Busy bandwagon as of late, but its something I want to really work toward making it more possible when the Fall rolls around. That seems to be the time when things really start to bog down for me.
I’ve been forced to “Savor Slow” the past few days because of my illness. But, I realize that was probably the result of being way to busy and not restful enough the past few weeks. So, now that I have a month or so left in the summer (!) I plan to savor some slowness right now and organize myself to be able to do it even when school and work and all the other things that come along with the Fall kick in late in August.
What about you? Are you a slow goer or a busy, busy bee? I think there are speeds in between and there are also times when we have to be a busy, busy bee. But, being aware and making those choices consciously is pretty important.
