Being Vs Doing
It is to remind us that it is not about what we do, it’s about who we are…
Our value is found in who we are as divine and unconditionally loved souls…
Not in what we do
Being busy or productive or overly helpful doesn’t increase or decrease our value at the level of the divine.
There is a different way of looking at this idea of being that will completely change your life when applied to the habits you are trying to improve.
For instance, when we decide to make a change, we will often think about what we need to do to change the habit.
If we want to exercise more, we might consider getting up earlier or purchasing a gym membership. Even adding daily walks or buying a treadmill.
If we want to eat better, we might look for a specific eating plan or simply “eat less”. Maybe even decide to cut out sugar or lower our wine intake.
While these are all great ideas…notice where the focus is.
It’s all about what you need to do differently.
The problem with this approach is that what you are asking yourself to do…
…maybe fundamentally out of step with who you currently are.
*A couch potato (identity) is not going to run a marathon (action) but an elite athlete will…
*A night hawk is not going to easily get out of bed at 5 am, but an early bird will.
*Someone who loves baked goods may have a difficult time never having cake again, but someone who doesn’t like sweets will have no problem saying no to eating cake.
If you want to exercise more, find a time that works for you with your natural rhythm.
If you want to stop eating baked goods, make a plan to help find a healthy balance.
If you want to stop drinking wine, take steps today toward drinking less.
It is a small but very significant shift to change your goal from what you want to do to who you want to be.
Anything that helps you find what works with your natural rhythm is very powerful.
Affirmations can be a very helpful tool to help you with your new intentions.
Use the following affirmations as examples of intentions that you can apply to any area of your life that you want to see a significant change in:
I am the healthiest I have ever been
I am finding balance
I am making time to exercise
I am unconditionally loved
Remember, power is always in who you are not what you do.
What if not forgiving your family, the past or yourself is a negative pattern that is keeping you from moving forward?
