There are moments that we all have in life to bring us joy.
What I’m really curious about are the moments that we get to create with each other, the ones that make an impression that lasts a lifetime.
If you want more breathtaking moments I hope that you’ll recognize the way that you’re able to create them.
This week I actually had the opportunity to listen to an audio about undoing the do-er.
And I recognize that I have become a doer.
As a child I was creative and joyful, I played and laughed.
While I have gotten older, I recognize I have become task-oriented and driven by accomplishments.
I was trained to be someone who worked hard and to give it my all in the face of any obstacle.
Unfortunately, that also made me pick up tendencies of wanting to be in control all of the time.
Or being disappointed when things didn’t go my way.
I recognized myself in listening to the audio clearly as being a doer.
And the biggest hint I had to help me come to this realization was the question I asked, “How do I stop?”
Only someone who is trying to figure out how to stop “doing” would resolve things by “doing” more.
So, I took a deep breath, and it felt good. I took another and I recognized the answer was that simple.
The busyness we have in this world we create, by thinking and then by doing.
Recognizing momentary gifts.
Once I relaxed, my entire perception changed.
I didn’t feel rushed, I was beginning to enjoy myself.
My children and domestic partner were getting my attention.
The laundry piling up was non-trivial, snuggling was way more important.
I began to see how blessed and lucky I am to live a life I love.
Enjoy sharing lessons in my writing, creating digital images for other companies, helping them be successful.
Seeing my family, near and far, through eyes of gratefulness.
Yes, I cried…if you know me well that’s not new, although the level at which I felt the gratitude was as if I won a million dollars.
The abundance, safety, and peace I feel being born into this family is far exceeding any value dollars could provide to me.
Life is not about getting it done, it’s about enjoying these moments.
Find the balance between the doer-ship and creativeness that lives inside of you.
That creativity can provide you just as much of a sense of accomplishment as doing shit that needs to be done.
And it’s so freeing.
Letting time lift you up.
Time is meant to help us on our destination.
It’s equivalent to the place you are meeting, for when you will be cocreating there.
We use time as an excuse.
There is always time for the important stuff.
I invite you to ask yourself what you are prioritizing as important.
The point of this blog is to get you to see what you are doing with your time.
To create an urgency behind what you really want to do to add to this world.
Truly, if it’s spreadsheets and meetings then more power to you.
And if you are doing those things yet don’t feel fulfilled, how are you using your time here?
Are you sharing with the rest of us what you are passionate about?
We are all looking for the moments in life that take our breath away.
Where we are joyous, having fun and living in the moment.
This is the way to create more of that, time lifts you, it’s not what you do or who you do it with.
Time aides us in our expansion, there is no way to fail, it elevates our existence.
If you spend your time then it’s wasted.
When time lifts you then you are using it wisely, doing what you are called to do.
So, I invite you to relax, check-in with the gifts you receive in each moment and let time lift you.
If you need someone to guide you through the process, you know I’m here for coaching.
And my Phoenix Program Workbook provides a great set of tools to get you started on a path to finding the moments that take your breath away.
Looking forward to more interactions with you after Thanksgiving!
