Why is it that our self worth is wrapped up in our “doing-ness”. I have been thinking a lot about this today as I woke up feeling poopy and had to take it slow. Thankfully, I work for myself and I had the leisure to do that. Not many people can say that, so for that, I feel very blessed.
So, back to this “doing-ness” thing. I notice that if I rest during the day when everyone else is caught up in their busy-ness, I have a hard time letting that be OK. I do love to have quiet time for myself- to day dream- do as I please once in a awhile. This is the biggest pleasure of our 20’s, I believe. The time when we have few responsibilities- no business, family, husband, kids, schedule to keep up with. All of those things that make a life. This time to reflect is important. It is the creative time when you can let your mind wander into new possibilities. When we are caught up in our "doing-ness" we don't allow ourselves this time. Staying busy is SO last year! It's time to reflect, relax, allow, trust. Winter is perfect for that.
So this year I will be 37……holy crap batman!
This lead me to question, what do I REALLY want for myself? My life? I actually think about this a lot…..perhaps too much. It may be because I ask my clients this all the time……
”What makes you tic?”
“What lights your Divine Fire?”
“Why do you feel you are here one this planet, at this time?”
They are big questions, and I think because I am a Leo and a visionary creative-type I feel that my life is supposed to mean something. That I am here at this time to do something big, to help turn the world “ON” to light our fires, to inspire the Divine Dream that lives inside of us that is there…..for the world.
Yes, this is my purpose….my reason for being. How I manifest it is completely up to me. That is the beauty. The Divine Dance of destiny and free will.
So, Beloved, what is lighting your fire today?
Life is a grand buffet!
What are you choosing?
